Stampin' Up! Silhouette Sentiments is beautiful for CAS Cards

As you can all tell from my previous cards, I'm on a clean and simple kick right now... So, when I saw the daunting colours over at the Curtain Call Colour Challenge, my first thought was to use blocks of colour, to create a focal point on my white cardstock...
I was inspired by the Cube Lights in the picture, so went with those... I clear embossed the images from Silhouette Sentiments on 1.5" squares and then lined them up on my card, I then stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso (sentiment is from Upsy Daisy)... 
I am also entering this into Less is More Challenge week 3, which is a theme challenge - Spring! I think the colours are very spring like, and flowers represent spring to me as well... 
The only way you can get your hands on this cute little stamp set (Silhouette Sentiments) is either by placing an order of $300 or more (not incl. postage), or host a workshop of over $300, if you are interested in either of these options, please do not hesitate to email me or call me on 0405 173 237
Until next time... Happy Stamping!
