CAS Mix-up December and The Flower #3

I don't do a lot of mixed media cards but I'm trying to branch out and the CAS Mix-up Challenge is just what I need to spur me on.  The parameters for this month are stamping, sponging and choice.
I started by stamping the flower from PB.  I also have a stencil for this flower so I used it to sponge on color with Distress Ink.  I masked the flowers and sponged through a screen stencil in blue,  stamped a script in gray and splattered the background with more blue and gray.   I mounted the flower panel on Soft Stone and white embossed the sentiment on a scrap of black.  It looks like I made a lot of choices for my card. (wink).  I hope it's CAS enough.

The Flower Challenge wants us to use an older flower stamp or die and this one is probably one of my oldest so I'm sending my card to them too.

The sun is shining today.  I think that's to lull us into a false sense of security.  It's frigid out and the forecast for the weekend doesn't look good. I'm supposed to have Christmas with my kids and grands and greats on Sunday and I may not make it.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope things are looking good where you are.

  5. Beautiful card Bobby, love this flower and how you have done the layers of stamping, sponging stencil and stamp and text all comes together perfectly.
    Was just admiring it somewhere else and saying I really need to buy the stamp. I have the stencil but I think I really need the stamp........but I am trying to be good. Doesn't really work does it. Thanks so much for joining us at The flower Challenge Aileen DT
