CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #226 - Colours

This is my week to hostess for the CAS Colours & Sketches Blog.  Challenge #226 is a color challenge.

I was in need of some thank you cards and happened on my Simply Said: You Sentiment stamp and Elle- ments Die from Avery Elle.  Sorry, I don't know who makes the embossing folder (there's no name on it), but it's one of my "go to" folders.  I die cut the word and then embossed the crumb cake card front.  Because the negative space from the letters o and y were needed, I kept the die cut word and pieces in the folder to be embossed.  As a bonus,  I had an extra word you beautifully embossed from the Crumb Cake background! (*Scroll down to see the CAS card I made with it.)

Not being the neatest of crafters, Floral Frame was still on my desk - which provided me with the stamp for the cute flowers next to the word thank.  This inset style card is so quick and easy - I mass produced six of them in relatively little time!  The sentiment and die set will get lots of use!

Make sure you pop by the CC&S Blog and check out the DT inspiration! I hope you will come and play with us this week.

*Does it get any simpler than this?!?!
