CAS with a Yellow Twist.....

Hello everyone: I've been feeling a bit more comfortable with my CAS cards, I admit it took me a bit to get used to leaving all the "white space" that it's required for this style but, as of now, I've been having a lot of fun and have claimed several awards from CAS challenges.
The March challenge over at STAMPLORATIONS is once again, "Anything CAS Goes" with the optional color twist of YELLOW this time so, I took the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and created this card to combine both challenges.

The flower is from SU "Flower Shop" stamp set and it's stamped onto a piece of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers in Daffodil Delight and More Mustard. The flourishes are done with a die but unfortunately, I don't remember where are they from, I apologize for that. The "hi" sentiment is a punch from Uchida and it's super old, I love that it punches and embosses the paper at the same time.
Here is a close up of this very cute punch.


And here is a picture of the finished inside, both the sentiment and the flower are from a retired SU set called "Happiness Shared", just so beautiful.


Here are the banners that inspired my card.


Here is a picture of the stamp set I used for the inside.

Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you JoAnn, I always incorporate my water colored images, whether it's a CAS card or not.
      I was going to stamp the leaves but the die cuts are so much prettier.
