You Are Awesome...

Happy Monday! I'm starting the week with a short and sweet post sharing a clean and simple watercolor card (well, as close to clean and simple as I can get...LOL).

As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I had to have it. I was so taken with the long, vertical sentiment - it opens up so many design options. For this 4" x 6" card, I used the flower stamp that came with the sentiment, and added a different stamp, and die cut, for the accompanying sentiment at the bottom. I realize I might have jeopardized the true "CAS" label with the tear-outs and cheesecloth inserts, but I fell to the temptation once again...

Here are a few closeup shots around the front...

Image stamp:   Unity Stamp Co., "Bloom & Simplify"
Sentiment stamps:   Unity Stamp Co./"Bloom & Simplify";   Winnie & Walter/"The Big, The Bold, and You"
Sentiment die:   Simon Says Stamp ("you")
Stencil:    Tim Holtz Speckles            Gems:   Kaisercraft
Miscellaneous:   Sakura Koi watercolors, Uni Posca white pen, Studio 490 Translucent Embossing Paste, 
cheesecloth, drywall tape

Thanks so much for visiting today...I hope your week is starting with a smile!
