Purple Dandelion Mother's Day CAS Card

Used some negative pieces (Simon Says Stamps Stitched Circles) from a previous project for centers of the Dandelions on this Clean & Simple CAS Mother's Day card.

  3. Lovely Mother's Day card. Great soft colors....adore the texture and the way you have finished off the inside (I do that as I create the card so it's all ready to go--it gets easier and easier to do as you create it) Well done! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge Donna, Challenge Host.

  4. A beautiful CAS card Melissa. The embossed Dandelions are gorgeous and look lovely topped with the diecut stitched circles. Did you realise our theme was Paper Piecing though hun? Paper piecing is not a technique familiar to everyone, check out the blog to see how the DT have 'paper pieced' our images. This usually involves replacing a portion of a 'stamped' image with a patterned paper. Like a dress, or in my case, the tail of my mermaid. Love what you did and hope you'll come join us again soon. Warmest hugs, Wends x Sweet Stampin' DT
