Sweet Rose

Have you been looking back, over your last year's makes? I have. 
And I can see now, that in my attempt to hone a more CAS style,
I have rather neglected my designer papers and card and, probably,
inclined towards too much white space.
Time for a different approach, I think.

So, this year my focus word is COLOUR

 This is my entry for CAS(E) this sketch.
I have tried to keep everything on the CAS side, but also inject some colour.

The picture above looks a bit flat, but you can probably see better below,
 that my white panel and bottle are popped up on foam pads,
which I doubled up for the rose and stem.

I also discovered a little jar of  dew drops - remember them?
They're the frumpy step-sister to the more witty and sparkling 'sequin',
but they can still bring some shine to the party!    ;-)
