Finally, a Card For CASology!

I've been wanting to participate over at the new CASology challenge blog since it started a few weeks ago, and I finally had the chance to play along - yay! :)


I must say, I just love the idea of using a cue word for our inspiration - brilliant! This week our word is FRUIT.

I immediately thought of some of the fruit stamps I have from Flourishes, and decided to pull out the cherries stamp from their Peaches and Cherries set. I struggle with creating clean and simple designs, but I tried really hard to keep it that way with this card!


I colored the cherries with Copics. The sentiment comes with the set and I love it - it's so true!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
