Bloomin' eck...

... I nearly missed out on a challenge because my multiple calendars aren't talking to each other.  Not very co-ordinated this week.

The challenge at The Play Date Cafe is to use these colours:

The challenge at CASE Study is: 
"Think Out of the Box". 
What does it mean? We encourage you to try something new, whether it's a style that's different to yours, a new technique that you've been itching to try, perhaps a type of project that you never tackled before. We dare you to CHALLENGE yourselves! The possibilities are endless :)

And the challenge at Simon Says is:

Eyes Down Look In ,,,,,,,

Got the colours.  Got the Bingo (diagonal top left to bottom right - ribbon, free (rub-ons) and blooms).  The "out of the box" bit for me was a few things:

I've never used rub-on wording before, 
I've never done a bingo challenge before (they're in the same category as sketches for me - to be avoided if possible),
I don't use a lot of pre-printed die-cut shapes,
And I've not used a single stamp (very uncomfortable).

Sticky ribbon from Anita's
Rub-on wording from Making Memories Simply Stated
Die-cut bloom from K&Co


  1. Love the pop of colour and all the texture - really fantastic CAS card with very little white!

  2. Oh how happy this card is! Love those colours!
    Thanks for thinking outside the box with us at CASE Study this week! :)

  3. Love all that orange!! That single flower is so sweet with the ribbon stem. Great CAS card!

  4. Lovely CAS card Shirley, the orange is so nice and cheerful and I love how you've used the ribbon.

    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp
