Virginia's View Challenge this month is "clean slate".  My card is another version of the CASE of Laura Bassen's card that I previously made for Kara's Friday Inspiration File challenge.  I needed some thank you cards so did the same design in different colors.  Since it has lots of white space I think it qualifies for Virginia's challenge.  Am also entering this in Happy Little Stampers challenge of CAS+water coloring (thanks to Loll for suggesting I enter).

Before water coloring the background, I spritzed the paper with water & Perfect Pearls -gives it a  lovely glimmery effect, but difficult to photograph.

Supplies: Memory Box Gorgeous Gardenia outline die and Technique Tuesday sentiment

Thanks for stopping by and making my day with your kind comments.  Betty


  1. Beautiful, Betty! I"m pinning this for inspiration next time I pull out this gardenia die! Yes, it would make a great set of cards done in different colors!

  2. Gorgeous. I so love the effect of the watercolor behind the flower die. I will have to keep this in mind.

  3. Ditto to the above comments! This is simply a lovely way to enhance that beautiful die.

  4. Just beautiful, Betty .... love how this turned out and great coloring

    Hugs, lissy
