Back to CAS

Ok…my last couple of cards have been borderline CAS recently so I’m getting back to the Clean and Simple look today but  I’m sticking with the blue theme:
silhouette sentiments
I’ve used the Level One Hostess Set from Stampin’ Up!  Silhouette Sentiments and stamped flowers in Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Baha Breeze.  I’ve then inked around the stems to “ground them”.  (I’ve actually used this technique before.  You can see it here.)
I’ve matted the image on to  Marina Mist, adding a border with the Scallop trim punch, and 3d’d it to the front of a 15cm card.
BUT what to do for the sentiment?  I’ve used a dark card blank (Night of Navy) and having constructed my card before thinking about the sentiment I was a little stuck for the medium to use….
So I resorted to good old-fashioned handwriting.  Adds a personal touch too.  I’ve used the Signo uni-ball Gel Pen for this….available from Stampin’ Up! at £3.75. 
So I hope you like it.  I definitely think this technique of stamping a “wild field of flowers” is soo suitable for any occasion.  I’d love to see your versions…
I’m entering this in the following challenges:
Less is More {Shades of Blue}
Papertake Weekly {Anything Goes}
Allsorts Challenge {Free and Easy}
