Flowing Flowers for CAS Colours and Sketches 453

I'm loving the new Flowing Flowers stamp set. The bright Spring colours along with the emphasis on a clean and simple styling at CAS Colours and Sketches gave me a chance to try it out in a different way.

I made more of a feature of the Granny Apple Green card base by using it to create a wider frame around two sides of the panel rather than the more usual centred with a narrow border.

Stamped directly on the Basic White panel is a large flower in Daffodil Delight. The Mango Melody flower and leaves are fussy cut. I've stamped a second set of leaves and fussy cut them to build up the cluster.

The sentiment is die cut using Tailor Made Tags. I've added in some more flowers in Daffodil Delight on the tag and added a second tag in Daffodil Delight peeking out behind.

Although the gems are technically Pale Papaya, when used against Mango Melody they take on that colour. Or at least, so I think. 😀

At first, I wasn't so fussed about this sentiment but as I've used the set, it's really grown on me. I think it would work for a birthday, as well as any situation requiring congratulations. I really like the mix of fonts used here too.

You've teased us with just a tiny peek of the inside of the card, which I can tell you've stamped as well. :) I'm also a fan of the offset panel - it's an easy way to add a little visual interest different from the usual centered panel.
