Here's a contemporary Asian interpretation of this month's CAS Challenge theme - and it's quick and easy!  The Splendid Rose Frame is a very popular set for any occasion.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to use this versatile design.

Cut the Splendid Rose Frame circle section from black cardstock.  Cut the solid blossom from red cardstock.  Cut two of the Little Dragonflies from gold mirror cardstock.  

Cut a 1-⅛" strip of printed paper.  This beautiful pattern is from Shizen Design.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of Kraft cardstock.

Make a set of notecards with flowers of different colors for a very special gift.  Add envelopes, pack it in a poly bag and tie it with gold cord for a quick and easy gift set.  It's sure to be appreciated - and used!

Thanks to everyone from last weekend's SPRINGTIME IN SEATTLE class at Impress!  The warm, sunny spring day matched our flowery cards.   Special thanks too - Ann and Lynne - for helping everyone find everything they needed for their spring cards and Easter projects!

Thanks for visiting...see you again tomorrow, and on Thursday.  Hope you won't get tired of me after three days!

this is simply gorgeous!

Just love the simplicity of the colors and design! Just love what you do with kraft, red and black with that Shizen paper! Just really pops!

The red and black rose is really cool!

Thanks Stephanie - it's great with pink, coral or yellow flowers too!

Thanks Jan - this is a go-to combination for class too!

Thanks Jacky - try it with little butterflies too!
