Just a Note.....

I have the honour to be a guest designer at STAMPlorations again this month
......but this time for their CAS Challenge.
I was the lucky winner in their February Challenge with this card here

 I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to be asked.

The Design Team is fabulous and always come up with the 
most original, creative and stunning inspiration. 
STAMPlorations have a very active Blog, if you've time pop across and take a look....
They also have great challenges, incorporating lots of different crafting styles.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to Guest with you this month.
The CAS Challenge for April is.....
This is my card....without the optional twist.....
I started by stamping the Helenium Large Flower stamp lightly,
in black archival to help with the placement on the white card stock.
Next I used the Flutters & Splatters Large Stencil and blended vibrant dye inks 
through it to achieve the Splats...
The sentiment has been stamped using the Big Greetings Stamps 
and with a background stamp from the Mixed Media Elements set behind the word Note.
I re-stamped the Helenium stamp using my Misti to blacken the outline of the flower.
The edge has been heat embossed in black to finish off.

Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity...
