Card Inspiration

Sorry this picture is even more rubbish than usual but it wouldn't scan properly because the stamped panel is raised on foam pads and the light is too dim for a decent photograph but you get the idea.
I am a regular visitor to Susan Raihala's blog Simplicity. I love her very clean and simple cards which nevertheless have had so much thought put into them. She explains design ideas which are new to me in a way that makes them easy to understand. Last week I noticed this card on her blog and it inspired me to try something similar. I used flowers from 2 different Hero Arts sets and Versafine habanero. The sentiment is from a See D's set. Looking at it objectively I think the sentiment needed to be a little larger to balance the flowers on the left hand side but my larger sentiments were too large so I went with what I had.


  1. Very CAS but so effective Rukhshana !

  2. Great pop of colour on this CAS card, fabulous.

  3. I follow Susan's blog too and actually joined in with the new One Layer Challenge last month! I love your interpretation of the card Susan made, beautiful colour and a lovely stamp.

I read and value all your comments.
