10 Minute Craft Dash # 18 and CASology #44 - Bloom

I decided to play along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash #18 for the first time today.  The colors are lavender, green and yellow (my card is a bit more orange, but I was using YR copics)  I normally take days to make a card, starting and stopping, making and remaking each piece, so this was a fun challenge for me.  I also wanted to make a card for CASology #44 where this week's cue word is Bloom.  I just hung a beautiful hanging basket I received from my son on Mother's Day and it seemed like the perfect time to play along with such a happy, cheerful cue as Bloom.  Everyone loves flowers, even someone with a brown thumb like me.  I have a new stamp I have never used before, Serendipity Stamps Butterfly Garden.  It totally reminds me of the word bloom.

Butterfly Garden is super easy to color, requires very little shading (my type of coloring) and is perfect for a CAS card.  I just added the Serendipity sentiment (Thanks so much, large) and wrapped a simple twine bow around it.  This one will be very easy to mail, practically one layer.  This card was so easy and quick to make...final time was 9 minutes 30 seconds. (I had all the markers out and twine ready to go which made things go much quicker) Whew.  Fastest card I have ever made!

This is so pretty. I think that may be my favorite Serendipity stamp. Your coloring is amazing, and I do see some shading there. And, I'm impressed with your speedy crafting.

Wow that is quick! I agree this is one easy stamp to color because you don't really need to do any shading. Love the colors and this is a perfect thank you card for the flowers you received . I like the way you tied the twine around the center.
