Bowl of Love - Stampin' Up! What's Cookin'

   I'm so pleased to be joining the fabulous stampers over at CAS Colours & Sketches challenge for the month of March as a guest designer.  It's so exciting to join in these clean and simple challenges to showcase this style of card making.  I wouldn't say I'm a CAS stamper generally so this will really make me focus on a well designed card while still keeping it CAS.  Thanks so much for inviting me to join you ladies!

  The first challenge for the month is a beautiful color combination: 

  How lovely are these colors?  So perfect as we begin to look ahead to spring!  At first I thought they would make for a lovely spring flower card but then I completely veered off into another direction!  Isn't that just the way things happen sometimes?

  My What's Cookin' set has been a bit neglected so I thought I would give it a go with the challenge colors!  I started with a Basic White base then stamped the sentiment and bowl in Gray Granite.  I hand trimmed the bowl and cut a slit in the top of the bowl and then filled it with a bunch of hearts cut in the challenge colors.  I used one of heart dies in the Sweet Hearts dies set.  They were the perfect size.

  I added a length of Fresh Freesia Open Weave ribbon at the top of the card to balance the elements at the bottom.

  This was such a fun challenge and I can't wait to see all the creative ways these colors will be used so be sure to link up in the CAS Colors & Sketches gallery!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
