Clearly Besotted #10 (Spring), AEI♥U #5 (Turquoise, Pistachio, Aqua), CASology #92 (Garden), SSS Work It Wednesday #3 (Spring), SSS Wednesday 23/4 (Keep It Clean & Simple)

Here’s a spring-like, flower garden card …

CB 10, AEI♥U 5, CASology 92, SSS WIW #3I’m squeezing in (just) at Clearly Besotted‘s Spring themed challenge … and combining that with Avery Elle’s AEI♥U‘s colour week (Turquoise, Pistachio, Aqua), CASology‘s Garden Cue Card and Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday‘s Spring theme.

ETA:  Almost forgot, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday has a Keep it Clean & Simple week … I’m linking up there too!

The Avery Elle sentiment was stamped first … and the Clearly Besotted pistachio stems grew out of some of the letters.  I added the CB dandelion heads in aqua, and with the next size down dandelion image, overstamped them in turquoise, before liberally applying Wink of Stella to the flower heads (for dew!).  A few gems (concentrated dew!) finished it off.  I thought about matting it over a dark colour … and thought about adding a border each side … but I think doing so would’ve taken away from the soft dreamy look of these stems blowing gently in the breeze!

Off to link before the door clunks shut!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Oh Anita I love everything about this card. That dandelion is gorgeous and just like the one on the card you sent to me. The double stamping is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing with us at CASology!

    Perfect just the way it is Anita! So glad you didn’t add those few extras you were contemplating – your creation is just beautiful as it is. Love that dandelion and the overstamping is all that it needs. Clever girl having the stems grow out of the letters of the sentiment – fabulous detail! Hugs, Ann

    Hi Anita, so glad you didn’t add anything else to this beauty no need just pure CAS perfect . I love the stems growing out of the sentiment a dreamy card indeed.

    Definitely another one of those ‘STEP AWAY FROM THE CARD” moments! It is stunning, beautiful, clean, breath taking, gorgeous and WOW…just the way it is! The dandelion images are so ‘delicately dreamy’ over-stamped in the colors that you have used! No borders needed!

    Um…by the way….WINNER, WINNER….

  9. Bev

    Very dreamy! I think you’ve done everything exactly perfectly on this card. I so love the linen paper…it’s soft and crisp at the same time. Love the texture it gives to this card. Beautiful stamping, gorgeous colors, and definitely dreamy. LOVE this. Hope you have a great weekend. Big hugs.

    This is such a beautiful card, Anita! I love that you chose turquoise for the dandelions and the clever way you connected the letters and stems…so pretty!

    …..sigh….Your card is dreamy, soft, beautiful, airy….absolutely gorgeous! I can just ‘see’ those delicate dandelions swaying in the breeze. Yes, Geri has it right: winner, winner – for the challenges and for brightening this cloudy, still-winter-ish day! Love it!! Hugs~c

    Bonjour Anita
    j’aime bien votre carte. C’est epoustouflant.
    Can you tell I’m having French lessons? lol …feel free to correct me.
    Gorgeous stamping and the design is so unusual, the gems dotted around are perfection. Well done.

  13. Petra

    Oh, I’m loving your beautiful flowers, Anita, and so clever to have them stem from your sentiment!!! The three little rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch!!

  14. kimheggins

    Wow…this is just beautiful! I am so sorry to be so late to the party with commenting. This is such a stunning card and I really love your sweet posies and how them seem to grow out of your words, just amazing my friend!

  15. Shona Chambers

    This is absolutely, positively one of my favourite cards you have done this year!! Its so soft and yet colourful. I LOVE the dandelion stamps and the stamping with the darker colour over-top is such a brilliant idea. This is genius, a winner and a big A++ !
