Guest designing at CASology

Hello and happy Tuesday!

I am so excited today, as today's card is my part as a guest designer for this week's CASology challenge.
CASology is one of my favorite challenges, where I try to play along every week. I love CASology, because it gives me the opportunity to think about trivial things. And the brainstorming about the cue card might keep my brain young, hopefully :).

This week's cue word is SPROUT.
My idea was that even a tiny sprout has the potential to become a whole tree.
And I thought the sentiment from Papertreyink underlines my idea so well.

The tree image is a stamp from Woodware. I stamped it in two shades of brown. I then drew an outline around the tree with a pencil to keep the leaves in shape and added leaves using Copic markers. The sprout was cut with my Cricut. The sentiment was stamped in brown at first. Then I inked up the word "worth" using black ink and stamped it again with the help of Misti. I adhered two strips of CS in soft green on both sides of the card base, a piece of green foiled CS where the sprout would be and mounted the front panel using some foam tape. To finish off the card I added two green rhinestones.

Thank you all for visiting my blog today and I hope you could find some crafty time to join in the fun at CASology this week!
So Suzy Stamps is the generous sponser this week over at CASology!

I'm entering this card also at SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thank you and have a great day!

This is a wonderful card. I love the tree, and especially those leaves you drew. And, the sentiment is a really thoughtful one, and fits with the tree and our challenge perfectly. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer at CASology this month.

A beautiful tree and a great idea for the challenge TaeEun, especially with the seedling you have attached to the trunk. I love the leaves you have drawn yourself. x
