Birthday Wishes ~ A "CAS" Card

Hi everyone! Wish all of you good day and all is well. I am under the weather at the moment but feel bored when I'm not crafting at all so I pull out my stash and tried my hands at clean and simple card for a change to fill the time.

For this card, my intention was to make a one layer mixed media card but that was very tough because I have to have layers. My concept of creation has always been the more the merrier, the bulky the better, heavy duty texture {hehe} and must have splatter of inks and paints. But today I leave all that and opt for CAS {smile}.

What do you think of this CAS card? Would love to hear your opinion...
So anyway, I wanted this to be very simple. I used Francheville kraft paper for my background to suit the flower theme and stamped the flowers for the center part. I decided not to use watercolors but combination of Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drop and Versafine ink pads to color the stamped flower from Kaisercraft using paint brush and water.
I simply did pointillism around the edges with black gel pen and stamped the two sides of the card for interest.

I'm not quite sure if I am happy and satisfied with my attempt at making this card. I believe this is probably my third attempt in four months trying my hands at CAS card but seldom turns out the way I want, lol. I will not give up and try again next time in my quest to make just one layer mixed media card...we'll see :)

I thought I would take my simple creation into these challenges:
1. The Mixed Media Card : Flowers    
2. Cardabilities : Sketch #121 
 3. Free-Works : Any work with kraft paper
Thank you for dropping by my blog today. I appreciate your time visiting me today. Until then. Take care and have a nice day.

Hugs and smiles,
