CAS 102 ( And Game On with Silhouette)

CTMH has some big changes coming up...including retiring most of our paper packs.  I would be in utter dismay if I wasn't certain that we'll be producing something even more fabulous! One of my all time favorites (I say that about a lot of papers, don't I?) has been Silhouette.I used it for a variety of cards over the last twenty four hours. This one is for the Clean And Simple 102 challenge. I had a tough time with this week's sketch!
Supplies (All Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted)
Simply Snapshots album pages (Silhouette)
cardstock bamboo, juniper, tulip, blush
sparkles and pearls (non CTMH...can't wait 'til my supply is restocked this week : ) )
Stipple Brush (Texture Tools)
Other: flower punch, square punch)

  I combined it with Game On for this card that I quickly made this morning for a friend whose birthday we were celebrating:

Remember the death of my flower punch that I shared in THIS POST?  Well there has been a resurrection!  My wonderful husband fixed it for the umpteenth time and this time it seems to be a more permanent fix. Yay for the Handsome Husband!
These flowers are quick and easy using a flower punch (some people simply cut circles or scroll circles and scrunch) and the Game On newsprint paper along with the CTMH Filigree Charm brads.
Supplies (all supplies Close To My Heart except punch):
Silhouetee paper pack
Game On paper pack
black ink

I've been blessed with so many wonderful friends that I could just make "Love you, friend" cards all day long. I hope each and every one of my friends knows the element of joy and encouragement that they add to my life.
