Fridays and a Thursday

Hello. I have had a pretty good/productive week. So I am taking a break today to ignore my household chores and focus on some crafting. :) My husband is taking me out tonight for dinner and a concert, so I will have to get my house cleaned up for the babysitter, showered, and dressed eventually, but for now, I'm content to lounge in my PJs.

I made this card for 4 Friday challenges and a Thursday sketch:

CAS-ual Fridays - Shades of Grey
Frosted Designs - Punctuation
Friday Mashup - Flowers and/or Monochromatic
Day for Daisies - Add some Green
CAS(E) This Sketch

I printed the Day for Daisies image onto Slate cardstock and colored it in with a chalk marker and the CTMH alcohol markers. I colored the stems green, but since you can't see it very well, I added some green epoxy bubbles to the centers of the little flowers. The punctuation I used for the challenge at Frosted designs was this cute sentiment from the Whooo's your Valentine stamp set. It has a +plus sign and an =equal sign, so I hope that's enough to meet the challenge requirements! I wanted to keep this clean and simple, and I debated adding the little daisies, but I really wanted an extra touch. It's still pretty CAS, don't you think? The sketch is rotated 90 degrees, and the sentiment is also rotated... I wanted to leave it right side up.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Slate, White Daisy, Whisper
Stamps: Whooo's Your Valentine, ADFD digi image (not CTMH)
Ink: Black
Markers: Chalk, Honey, Pear
Other: Black Ribbon Rounds, Just Blooms Paper Shapes, Blue/Green Epoxy Bubbles
