I had a chance to make a card this morning and it's for two challenges - Addicted to CAS and Addicted to Stamps and More.
The code word from ATCAS is "Flower" and the theme this week at Addicted to Stamps and More is "Anything Goes".
I really tried to keep it CAS and this is what I came up with. I paper pieced the rose from a pattern that I found years ago. I scanned it into my computer, then brought it into my Silhouette program and turned it into a cut file. I cut the rose stem and leaf from green card stock, then darkened the edges with a Copic marker. I inked the edges of each piece of the rose bloom with some black ink to give it a little more dimension. Lastly, I added a few dew drops to the rose and leaf with some crystal lacquer. I made the vase with a banner die, just turned it on end. I colored it with Copics, then added a layer of crystal lacquer. I grounded the vase with an oval from Avery Elle. The sentiment is from HA. I stamped the oval shadow and the sentiment with HA soft granite. I embossed the top half of a panel with Cuttlebug EF, then scored a couple of lines below the embossing. I added another panel behind the embossed panel. To make it match my colors, I simply applied the soft granite ink to the edges of a piece of white card stock, then used it as a mat. I popped the panel on a white card base. I also added a touch of shading with a C2 Copic right below the embossed panel.
