Can you believe I'm making CAS cards???

The CAS challenge on Splitcoast today is a color challenge: use teal, white, and one other color of our choice..... Chocolate Chip was my choice. I dug out my Taken With Teal and Chocolate Chip scraps and went to work on this thank you card for a friend. The little coffee cups from Rubbernecker's Coffeetime Set #458 were stamped with Taken With Teal and colored with a brown Copic. The background TWT layer was run through the cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder and the SU scallop punch was used on the botton edge. Ribbon and doodling finish it off. I usually jazz my cards up a bit so keeping this a CAS design was a real challenge!!!
I made this little gift set of 3x3 cards for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast Saturday. Stef picked a wonderful site called Nell Hill's..... I found my inspiration from these beautiful Floral Prints. The images from 2 different Rubbernecker Floral sets and the Rubbernecker Wildflower background stamp were used along with Chocolate Chip, Ballet Blue, and Sage Shadow markers. Pretty simple but perfect to fit into a little gift bag.
Wait till my DD Holly sees my CAS cards...she is going to flip, I tell ya!!! Thanks for visiting and have a great day!!!
