Just Us Girls #434 - Wild Card: CAS

It's Wild Card Week over at Just Us Girls and Angie chose CAS:  Clean and Simple as her challenge. 
 
I made four cards, but only three made the cut!  I chose this layered dahlia stencils from Altenew for my background and sponged two coordinating colors on each, then added a stacked die cut on each one.  The die cuts have shimmer on them.
 
On this one, I used wild honey and spiced marmalade oxide inks.

This one was done with worn lipstick and picked raspberry oxide inks.

This last one has tattered rose and abandoned coral oxide inks.
 
The one that didn't make it used shaded lilac and wilted violet.  It was so pretty!  But some of the yellow inks got on it and it was unsalvageable!   I so wanted to make another, but my stencils were cleaned and inks put away.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our March guest, Stef Perry, on the JUGs blog.  This is her last week with us and I'd like to thank her for joining us with her amazing cards this month!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love how your cards turned out, all the colors look gorgeous! I have that stencil but have only used it once, so you've inspired me to dust it off!

Once you get started with a design it's great to keep going in different colors. These all look fabulous, Lisa. I bet it was lovely in purple too.
