Stampin' Up! Lily Pad Lake

This was another CASE we made at cards on Thursday. Thank you, Meg, for preparing the card kit and die cutting for us! Thanks to Cindy Braumbaugh for the inspiration and design.

I don't have this bundle yet but I'm sure I will own it soon! We see herons all the time on our "lake" in Florida. SU needs to come out with a Sand Hill Crane stamp set and an alligator!

I found a new challenge site and hope you'll take time to visit it...Calling All Sistahs - CAS #13

I'm hoping that with the yellow and green in my card that they'll let me know if it's not acceptable. But isn't their photo inspiration beautiful? It gives me an idea for another card! The theme for their challenge is a card of encouragement. I know this fits the bill!


  • Whisper White Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Night of Navy Mat:  3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.
  • Balmy Blue Panel:   3 3/4″ x 5″

  1. well we just love your card at Calling All Sistahs-you can use either the photo or the colours or either to inspire you to make a card to brighten someone's day and you don't need to use all the yes your card works perfectly for us! I love the subtle use of the pattern in the background and how you followed this through to the centre of the card.
