Get Well Bulrushes Stampin' Up! style


There's a new challenge site - CASology - which I've been meaning to join in with but have only got round to it today.  


You are given a cue card to make a Clean and Simple card from.  I must admit to being stumped when I saw Pond!

However I kept coming back to Bulrushes and thought the Word Window Punch would be perfect for them.  I used Daffodil Delight to create the heads and sponged down one side to give a little dimension.   I always have a bag of strips so attached a couple of stalks in Old Olive.  I punched an oval out of the bottom section of my Whisper White panel using the Extra Large Oval Punch then corner rounded each of the corners.  I attached some Night of Navy to the base card to show through the oval. Stamped my sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Night of Navy then attached my panel to the Whisper White base card with Dimensionals.  The bulrushes were then added to the panel before adding a strip of Old Olive along the bottom.

Having been stumped I'm really pleased how it's turned out.  

I'd like to say Hello to Barbara thank you for following me, I hope you pop by often. 

Thanks for visiting me today. x
