Mothers Day Card

     Here is a Mother's Day Card I made for Operation Write Home.

Online Sentiment

Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple "Color my World".

     I made this card a few weeks ago for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use colored cardstock for a CAS (clean and simple) card.  I wanted to make a Thank You card for someone so I decided to go very simple and just use embossing.  CAS cards are typically the hardest.  I made three attempts before coming up with this card because I had a hard time lining everything up evenly.  I am very pleased with the results though.  I am giving the card away today so I finally photographed it.

Case(E) this Sketch cards.

     I found a website that gives beautiful sketches for clean and simple cards.  I find clean and simple cards to look closest to high quality store bought cards and because this is what I am striving for in the cards I sent to Operation Write Home, I thought I would try a few of their sketches.  I did not participate in their challenges because these were older sketches.

I used Autumn Leaves-Elegant Flourishes and Fiskars Holiday Frolic (for the snowflakes) plus some blue gems.  I framed the design with blue card stock.
