I am playing with more stuff out of my bin of newly purchased items. Some have been sitting for a couple of months.  Since I have reorganized things, it is easier for that bin of new items to be seen.

After taking a peek at my list of saved challenges, this card came together very quickly.  But I am two for two tonight on being late for challenge posting.  I used the sketch at (now closed)  Freshly Made Sketches, and the prompt at Less is More - Tactile.  My tactile pieces are the flowers cut from fun foam.

ETA: I am also submitting this to the Paper Smooches July Challenge. (Thanks Martha!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. love the yellow and gray together and that embossed background around the flower is the perfect accent!!

  2. Such pretty colors together, really nice and clever use of the sketch!

  3. Beautiful fun foam flowers, Cat!

  4. So stylish, clean and impactful. Using fun foam has given a great texture/3D effect while still keeping the card perfectly CAS. Great LIM entry, well done!

  5. OH MY goodness, Cat, I this darling card! It's beautifully designed, perfectly CAS, and simply gorgeous! And, the yellow and grey combination is fabulous. GREAT job!
