CAS Friday Colour Block Challenge

I have found over the past few weeks that I quite enjoy making CAS cards they pose a different sort of challenge for me, I have to hold back from adding too much detail!!
This week challenge over at the CAS-ual Friday blog is "Colour Blocking"

"This week we are Color Blocking: place blocks, or areas of color, next to each other to form a cohesive design on your Clean And Simple creation"

I really enjoyed making this card and ended up making two,  the background is made by inking my acrylic block with distress ink and then spritzing with perfect pearls before stamping onto my card,  the pearls give the background a lovely shimmer.
The single Real Dill flower is from the Hero Arts set called Real Garden Petals, I love this set!

We are having real April showers this week in June, every time I try to weed the garden the heavens open, hopefully the forecast is better for tomorrow.  Hope you are having a better day!.

Hi Sally

These are both lovely like how you've created the blocks of colour.

Hope you get all the weeding done.

These are so beauriful Sally! When I first saw the challenge I immediately thought of bright colours, but I am so glad you didn't! Thank you for the inspiration!
