ATCAS Challenge #23

Hello everyone! Are you glad it's Saturday?

Over at Addicted to CAS, we have a new code word for you. Your hostess this week is Sylvia and she has chosen



It is spring where I live. I'm sure you will remember me telling you that I only get two 'real' seasons here in Queensland. Spring and Summer. I think this year winter only lasted around 4 weeks.

Being in Canberra around this time of year was wonderful because as Spring sprung (spring sprung?), all the cherry blossom trees came to life. I miss seeing the change of seasons.

Here is my DT card -


I have created the focal panel by inking up an acrylic block with Pumpkin Pie and then pressing it onto Whisper White cardstock. 

I then masked that area with Post-it notes and used my French Foliage set in Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and More Mustard. I stamped randomly on the panel.

Then I simply mounted that panel and stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip.

I would also like to enter this card into the following fabulous challenges -






That's it for me today. Thanks so much for looking xx

  • Ink: Soft Suede (SU), More Mustard (SU), Pumpkin Pie (SU), Chocolate Chip (SU), Sahara Sand (SU)
