Time Out DT #68, CAS on Sunday #93, CAS-ual Fridays #158, Simplicity Thankgiving Campaign 2016, The Flower Challenge #1

Hello … bonjour!  We have a CASE the Designer challenge for you this fortnight at Time Out … and our designer is the amazingly talented Ardyth from Maskerade (yes, really!).  Ardyth’s fabulous card is below … here’s my take on it …

time-out-dt-68Time Out… and here’s Ardyth‘s floral delight …

My card is one layer, stamped with all but one image from Concord & 9th‘s Painted Thank You set.  I did the sentiment first, then randomly added the blooms (three reds) and leaves (two greens) around it.  The painted stripe at the bottom and the flower centres were embossed in gold, and I scattered some stamped dot clusters in the open spaces, to pick up on Ardyth‘s black frame.  Voilà!

What grabs your attention on Ardyth‘s card … sentiment, colours, florals, shimmery gold, the technique … or something else?  You can use any or all of the elements that Ardyth used for your card … we’d love to see what you create in our gallery!  All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with loads of lovely inspiration from our amazing DT, and from our fabulous Guest Designer, Marina from My Perfect Life (who you need to visit if you haven’t already … there’s so much deliciousness on offer)!

I’m playing along with …

    wonderful CASE with so many tiny items from Ardyth’s card incorporated in it. I love how you used the black dots to represent the frame and to emboss the gold strip…inspired!

    A lovely, bright and cheery card, Anita. Great colors and stamping. I like your take on the inspiration design. Sure makes me smile. 🙂

    There isn’t a thing I DON”T love about either card, Anita! Ardyth is a fabulous designer to CASE! You’ve honored her well with this fabulous, colorful card! xx

    Love how you arranged the floral images like a “wreath”, surrounding that wonderful large sentiment focal point! Wonderful CASE of Ardyth’s beautiful card, Anita!

    Oh wow, I love your take on Ardyth’s card Anita!!! I love Ardyth’s cards, been a big fan for a while, but I’m just as big of a fan of your cards too! The flowers you used are so pretty and I am loving those leaves. The font on the “thank you” is gorgeous. Hugs, Brenda

    I was lucky enough to tell you in person but I love that you used that watercolour stripe on the bottom and also your pretty flowers! Wonderful to think that my card inspired this!

    Magnifique Anita ! Que dire de plus ? Tout y est, les fleurs, le sentiment et le doré ! D’ailleurs, j’aime beaucoup ce sentiment, ce doit être un tampon énorme ! Il fait son effet et il est très joliment entouré de cette magnifique couronne de fleurs avec leur coeur doré ! Superbe !

  8. Stephanie Lanzalotto

    Anita, I love your interpretation of Ardyth’s inspiration piece. Love those little trios of black dots and the centers of the red flowers. Love the sentiment (wink, wink). Great minds think alike! So thrilled to be on the TO DT with you!

    Your interpretation of Ardyth’s card is very pretty with the gold embossed centers and the painted stripe!

    Sweet card Anita. And a great take on Ardyth’s amazing design. LOVE that painted stripe at the bottom. xx

  11. BarbGhig

    Beautiful take on Ardyth’s card, Anita! I love your choice of flowers and the gold ‘swipe’ across the bottom is amazing! Loving your bold sentiment, too 🙂

  12. Lisa Kind

    Stunning card, Anita! Love how those flowers frame the sentiment! And I love that painted stripe on the bottom!

  13. Claire A

    So lovely how you’ve grounded all those pretty flowers with the gold paint strip Anita – the blooms positively burst out from the card! Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

  14. Mary H

    Love your CASE of Ardyth’s card. That is a fantastic floral stamp set, and you’ve shown it to great advantage with the bright colors grouped around the bold sentiment. Liked the additional touch of the painted stripe grounding the card. Just lovely & I especially love the idea of one layer! TFS & Hugs

  15. Jill Vickers

    Simply beautiful Anita! That gorgeous bold sentiment is perfect with those pretty blooms – and that painted stripe across the bottom is perfection! Love it!

  16. Nonni

    Wonderful card Anita! I love all the flowers, this must have been amazingly fun to stamp! The sentiment looks amazing too.

  17. Shona Chambers

    I love your CASE of Ardyth’s card so much, you captured the colours and flow of her flowers beautifully and love your touch of gold. Thank you so much for joining us at this new challenge and your welcome back at The Flower Challenge anytime!!!!

    Gorgeous thank you card with a stunning background ! Love all the stamped blooms and the gold on the bottom! Thank you for all the kindness on my blog!

    Soooo….I appear to have acquired a ‘few’ (okay, a number!) of Concord and 9th sets, with little time to truly give them the attention they deserve. Perhaps I have an *ahem* obsession going on (skip the perhaps…I do. Definitely!). This set resides in my collection (we won’t discuss from how long ago) and is ‘still’ awaiting attention. Your showcase of it here is wonderfully inspiring; the wee flowers framing the bold Thank You…pretty plus! Love this (and once I get myself organized, I’m going on a full-fledged Concord & 9th palooza!)
    Hugs and love~c
