CAS Thinking Of You

Hello dear friends and fellow bloggers.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.  This week has seemed interminably long.  I can't believe it is only Friday.  I hope you are all feeling well.  The weather here in Oxfordshire is very cold today but bright and sunny and it is so nice to see a bit of blue sky.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

This is a 7" x 5" card.  The purple pearlescent figured card has been in my stash forever and a day I think. The silk flowers are also old stash so it good to be using it. The sentiment stamp is from Inca Stamps and was one of my very early buys ten or eleven years ago. I used Heartfelt Creations Petal Pleasures embossing folder and then just dotted some teeny tiny gems from Hobbycraft onto the flower centres.  A very simple card but looks quite pretty.

Take care everybody.


  1. This does look so very pretty. That embossing folder is divine! Adding the purple gems finishes it off perfectly!

  2. I love CAS cards with textured backgrounds - and this one is stunning too Christine. I am trying to use up all old embellishments this year, provided I can remember to do so lol! Keep warm and dry xx
