This Friday we're saying good-bye to three of our original Girl Fridays. One of which (Jaclyn) I had the pleasure of working with on a couple of design teams.I met Karen and Laura when I joined the CAS-ual Fridays team a year ago and it's been great getting to know these girls better. I don't know why I didn't find these three ladies in blog land sooner with their fab card styles. I know the ladies have great crafty things in store for them and I wish them all the best in the future! We will miss you gals!!!!
This week the challenge is all about flowers!! So dig out your flower stash and if you're like me, it's probably a big one lol. We want to see your CAS projects that are all about flowers!
Our sponsor this week is SRM Stickers and they were very generous in sending the Girl Fridays all kinds of sticky goodness to play with! Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see what you could win :)
For my card I wanted to incorporate the title of the challenge into my card and I oh so love the calendar stickers, so this idea was born. I went with no sentiment this time, as I liked the simplicity of the flower and wanted it to be the focus of my card sitting on the transparent flower calendar I created.
I made my card base and then die cut the flower shape. I then adhered the calendar sticker to a transparency and mounted it behind the flower cut out on the inside. The center flower is a smaller sie cut with some score lines and a button center. I popped the flower off the window with foam tape which allowed me to tuck a couple of felt leaves underneath. Some faux stitches around the flower and some simple score lines at the bottom to top it off.
I can't wait to see all the ideas that are going to "stem" from this challenge. The Girl Fridays would love to have you play along with us this week!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
