Its strange that on Instagram my CAS cards get the best views but give me a CAS challenge and my brain goes to mush.

I made a card and so wasn't happy with it, so I got out this gorgeous Hero Arts Thorn Tree and Grasses die and with the fabulous Simon says Stamp Moments of Grace sentiment worked out brilliantly together.

Here's the card I wasn't happy with I used the same sentiment and I used the Simon says Stamp Honey Leaves die which I coloured with copics definitely will use this idea again.

The Hero Arts Color Laying Owl I stamped in Browns didn't like it so I stamped it again in Greens I felt it was better but still wasn't happy which is why I made the other card.

The image mat was using Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and the dotty green papers is Pink and Main Sunset Paper. I'm going to have to have another go at this card to redeem myself.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Gorgeous cards Debby! They are both so elegant and I love the swirly sentiment xxx

I think both cards work really well as sympathy cards. I regularly do not like the cards I make, or find something wrong with them that really bothers me. When I look at your beautiful cards, though, all I see is perfection!

Both cards are so lovely x

Two beautiful cards Debby. The first has lots of lovely white space and the thorn tree and grasses look so elegant and love the style of the sentiment too, whilst the second has that pretty paper and the sweet owl on the leafy branch goes really well with it so definitely not one to discard as it still makes a great sympathy card. x

I think they're both great designs! I really like that sentiment. I might have to add that one to my never ending wishlist...
