Dream, create, inspire - CAS-ual Friday Challenge

Saturday July 23, 2011

It's a beautiful Saturday, here in northern Illinois!!!  It's RAINING!  Yes, I love it.  So much.
I can almost hear my flowers drinking in the moisture (it's been very, very dry here).  We've been watering our flowers...but it just isn't the same as a good rain.  I truly see a difference in the plants after we've had a soaking rain.
Anyway...back to paper crafting.
I'm playing along in the CAS-ual Fridays CFC12 today.  Here's the challenge:

Yup, dig through your stash and find those rub-ons that you haven't used in a while.  That's what I did.  And, you know what?  I've got a whole lot of great sentiments and images in those packages.  Why haven't I been using them???   Thanks to the DT at CAS-ual Fridays, I'll be using a lot more of those rub-ons :)

I decided to challenge myself to use only rub-ons on my stamping, no embellishments, no layers either.

I did add 3 score lines above the border of leaves.  This was an easy card to make - once I decided which images to use, and where to place them.  That took longer than actually making the card.  Way longer.
Thanks for stopping by!

Just a few supplies ~
stampers select white card stock from PTI
summer love rub-ons (retired) from SU!
scoring board from MS (borrowed from Cheryl, when I stamped at her home yesterday!)


  1. Fabulous! I love this one layer beauty! Such wonderful texture you added with those score lines and I'm glad you found some forgotten treasures in your stash! :) Glad you had some fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. GORGEOUS! The composition and score lines are so beautiful! It's hard to believe what rub-ons and stickers can do for cards without stamping, huh? I'm amazed myself :) Glad that you join the fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. Gorgeous card! Love your choice of colours & those score lines add the perfect touch!

  4. I love all the rub-ons you used! Thanks for posting this one. :) Very crisp card.

  5. Wow - this is so pretty! You have some great rub-ons ... and I love how you put them together for this CAS card. TFS!
    Cheers, Karen

  6. OH MY GOSH!! This is absolutely stunning and the epitome of clean and simple!! Amazing! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!!
