CASology #246: SEASON

Hello!

It’s hard to believe another week has whizzed by so quickly! And with a new week comes a new CASology cue:

We are in the beautiful season of Autumn in Australia, and I must admit that I haven’t seen an Autumn as glorious as this for a few years! Every day has been perfect! The light has lost its harsh summer glare, replaced instead with a softer, warm glow. Evenings have brought with it a welcome coolness, allowing one to snuggle under sheet and blanket at night, instead of lying like a starfish under rotating fan blades in the vain hope of catching a cool breeze.  And then there are our handful of deciduous trees, which are beginning to change colour and drop their leaves.

So, what might all this talk of Autumn have to do with this week’s card? Nothing really, except that the balmy warm weather we’ve been having feels like my perfect Summer, so I’ve made a summery floral birthday card inspired by the cue, Uniko Studio AND this fabulous card made by Sarah. I think it’s clear to see that I completely CASE(d) Sarah’s layout!

I was fortunate to win this great halftone stamp from Uniko Studio a short while ago, and was keen to put it into use! I picked some pop art colours to go with the pop art feel of the background stamp, and paired it with a bloom synonymous with balmy summer nights – the beautiful hibiscus from Uniko’s Paradise set! The sentiment is from Pure Florals:Cosmos

A super easy, CAS make, which could be created in a variety of colour combinations for a fun set! 🙂

What season inspires you? The CASology DT has interpreted this cue in a variety of interesting and creative ways, as always,. We also have the ever-talented Donna Mikasa guesting with us this week. You won’t want to miss her card either:
