CAS Sunflowers

Two for two! Two cards in two days, I don't think I've made two cards the past two months. Keeping it cleaner and more CAS works better for my schedule I think!
I like this sunflower set, pretty much anything with sunflowers. Used a very simple layout.
Stamped with SU Barely Banana on PTI Lemon Tart cardstock and then went over some of the petals for highlighting with a Y38 copic marker. The sunflower centers are Ranger Vintage Photo stamped on kraft cardstock, leaves are SU Kiwi Kiss on a random scrap of green. Sentiment is from a set by MFP. Thanks for looking!

CAS anniversary

Needed a quick anniversary card and with the rate I'm stamping at lately (infrequent) quick is best!
Received this adorable set as a present from Crafty Mathchick and just now getting a chance to pull it out. Thank you Meredith! Love the little robots.
I thought the circular pattern on the embossing strip matched his eyes and the little strip of ricrac ribbon matches the color in the basket holding the hearts, in case that isn't clear in the photo. Used a combination of prismacolor pencils, markers and a gel pen to color in the image. Popped it up on foam dots to add a bit of interest.
The hearts are to symbolized anniversary, a marriage between two people and the rhinestone is there to hid a defect in the pink cardstock! Gotta love mistakes, they are nothing but embellishment opportunities.
Found CASual Fridays challenge blog so I offset the hearts to hang off the side of the page a bit to fit their challenge this week, I like the effect. (CFC106) Hearts were cut using PTI heart dies. Thanks for looking!
