The World is Full of Beauty When the Heart is Full of Love

Having attempted a CAS card the other day I think I felt really inspired by some of the other entries I saw, and i also noticed that the Penny Black blog has been showcasing "crafting with white space". So I think I got a bit over-excited as I have made another CAS card. This time it really is CAS because I actually (sharp intake of breath) stamped or coloured everything directly onto the base cardstock - eek!

My flower is from the Penny Black "Flowers and Wishes" set, and the gorgeous sentiment is by Lavinia Stamps. I made my sun by die cutting a circle from card to make a stencil, and then sponging through it using Versamagic chalk inks. The only embellishment is a row of teeny weeny gold heart shaped gems by Papermania. Job done!
