It's Monday again; doesn't the weekend go by so fast?!

And as usual it's time for another CAS (clean & simple) splitcoast challenge.

This week's CAS challenge is a sketch challenge based on Alanna's card shown here.

I also made this card for today's Try a New Technique challenge on splitcoast. Today's challenge was to find ways to use pierce our card. The piercing on my card is on my background. I made a few score lines using my scor-pal and in-between a few of the lines I did some paper piercing.

I colored my flower stamp using my SU markers and then I stamped it onto my card stock. Next I punched out the images and layered them onto my punched Certainly Celery layer. I made a card similar to this a few weeks ago and I had this card in mind when I made my card today.

I'm sorry that my picture isn't very good; I had a hard time getting a nice photo this morning. Have a great rest of the day! Thanks for stopping by!

The scoring/piercing is a lovely background for your pretty framed flowers.
