CAS ...using a new image

Hello friends,
I am way behind in my postings, but celebrating my birthday on Wednesday and today being a holiday has meant lots of time spent with family and friends. Today was great with our son, DIL and 2 grandsons coming over. I was asked by Jayden the youngest, all of 5 years if I knew how to knit.. and he wasn't satisfied until I got out needles and yarn and showed that I really could knit. Then of course he had to have a go....next question. Granny do you know how to knit a scarf?....I now have 2 scarves to knit, 1 each. A red and a purple...so best I go and get the yarn tomorrow and get started.

Now onto my card. Last Sunday this was one of the new images from Digistamps4Joy, but I just didn't get it finished on time. CAS  is not something I am very comfortable with, but this image just seemed so right for it, and I really had a battle not to add anything else.



I printed the image Daffodil which you can find HERE ran it through the Cuttlebug with this folder, but don't have a name for it.

I coloured it with Distress inks.

The edges of the card were coloured with Distress ink..peeled paint.

Stamped the sentiment

Thanks for popping in, love to hear what you think. Take care.
 
Love Ursula
