CAS-ual Fridays: CFC52

CAS-ual Fridays challenge #52 this week is to make a CAS card with a bird.

I went long for this card with a 3.5x8 inch base card. The stamp is an old one - that I think is from Laura Ashley! - and I stamped it with black papermania ink.

I wanted to keep the colours very soft, so I used pencils to colour, only colouring the peacock and the flowers, to keep it all very simple.

I added the sentiment from Stampin' up and three small blue gems at the top - I was going to have black gems, but I thought the blue gems would just draw it in with the colouring of the peacocks body.


  1. Very pretty and I love the long shape of the card, really showcases the image well :) Thanks for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. Now this is a beautiful card and I just love the urn stamp and peakcock! Thank you so much for stoping by my blog.

  3. This is beautiful. Love the softness of the colours. It emphasize your sentiment.

  4. The tall card is perfect for this image, and your soft coloring is wonderful, especially for a sympathy card. Thanks for joining us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  5. What a pretty card! I too like the tall, skinny card for this image. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
