Triple Whammy

Hello again bloggers,

So how has your weekend been? I've had a 'child free' day today and went to the Sydney Papercraft Festival for a bit of inspiration and a teeny tiny bit of shopping. New stamps=more mojo...isn't that right? Anyway, after spending a few dollars I came home to a quiet house and finished a card that I'm entering for three different challenges - CAS-ual Fridays, CASology and CAS(e) this Sketch:

I stamped and masked the black and white background with the Waltzingmouse Camellia bloom. I then embossed the same bloom and some leaves with white embossing powder on to a black background. I did think it needed a small pop of colour so I matted them against some pink cardstock. It was surprisingly quick to do.....the hardest part was deciding where to put the flower.

Have a great weekend!
