ATCAS #9

Hi everyone! Over at Addicted to CAS it's time for a new code word! Are you ready?
Harriet is our host for this challenge and she has chosen -
Spring is in the air for most people except over here in Australia it is Autumn now. Living in a more northern part of Australia (so it is warm most of the year around), we don't even get Autumn. I do miss all the colours that Autumn brings. I moved from my hometown of Canberra just over 10 years ago and I really try not to go there in the cooler months because it's not just cooler, it is freezing! So, I haven't seen a 'typical' Autumn for quite some time now.
But! Enough of that and onto my DT card -
I'm in two minds about this card. I only coloured in one of the flowers to give the card a focal point, but to me the card seems unfinished. I'll leave it for you to decide.
The sentiment is from an Inspired by Stamping set called Birthday Greetings. I loved that the sentiment included the word 'sunshine'.
The flowers are from my Mixed Bunch set.
Simply stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and then I coloured the one flower with Daffodil Delight.
I hope to see you over at ATCAS so we can all see your Spring inspired cards. Don't forget that Spring may mean something to you other than flowers etc. Does it remind you of the spring that Tigger has or even a Spring Roll?.... lol

  3. I totally agree with Marie, doesn't look unfinished and it does give the sense of spring being just around the corner (unless it's wistful thinking for us in the northern hemisphere, lol!). Great inspiration and great sentiment too!

  6. Hi Kylie
    I think your card looks brilliant, step away from your card (LOL) and don't change anything. I love how you gave it a splash of colour in one corner. Love the sentiment too!
    Shame you are missing the Autumn season! I love Autumn colours! It's meant to be Spring in UK but snowing at the moment. I think my blooming flowers in the front of the garden are not going to last!

  12. Great card Kylie, I like just the one flower coloured too, it has more impact and draws your eye up to read the sentiment. Fab. Xx

  13. Brilliant card Kylie. Love how you have just coloured the one flower. It really draws your eye in and then around the card following the the circle centers of the other flowers.
    Hugs, Florence x

  14. Kylie your card is super just as it is, and the yellow coloured flower gives the eye somewhere to start before it follows the others around to the lovely sentiment. Fab!

  17. Kylie,

    to put color only to one flower is such a great idea, it adds an awesome accent and keeps the focus on the sentiment.
    Great card!

    Hugs
