CAS Colors and Sketches Challenge #212

Happy Monday!! I hope you are all having a start to a great week.

Today I have a quick card that I created for the CAS Colors and Sketches blog challenge #212. This is a new to me challenge and I decided to give it a try.

I had time to play around this weekend with things I had bought but never used. I seem to have a lot of this. Every time I say I am going on a no buying challenge I cannot stick to it because of all the cute stuff. I am really going to adhere to it, though, after this weekend. I have more then I will ever be able to use and I HATE to get rid of my craft stuff. (other stuff, yes, craft stuff no.)

So I FINALLY used my PaperTrey Ink "What The Doodle: Tea Time Die" and matching stamp set for this card.

I stamped the tea cup on Canson watercolor paper and heat embossed in white. I then used the dies to cut the cup out. I dusted off my Zig Clean Color Markers and used a brush to watercolor the teacup.

While it was drying, I die cut a pinked edged circle out of pink paper and a Spellbinders "Circle Delight" doily out of white card stock. I adhered it where the large circle was placed on the sketch.

I then added the tea cup for one of the circles and hearts for the other circle that I die cut out of a paper scrap using Simon Says Stamps "Large Holiday Shapes" dies.

I used a combination of a sentiment from the tea time set and My Favorite Things "Sending Hugs" die-namics for the sentiment. The last touch was to add Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Marker over the hearts and "hugs" sentiment, as well as a few sequins.

This was a simple card but I liked the way it came out. I used a pre-made card for the back, something I have a bunch of but never use. I decided I need to start digging them out instead of saving them for I don't know what!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by today. I hope you have a FABULOUS day!!
