Quick CAS card in turquoise

I'm just popping in for a very quick post today. It's been all work, work, work this week (as usual) with no time to even look in the direction of my craft room. I made this card last weekend but haven't even had time to put together a post to show it to you yet. But I'm here now, and that's what counts, right!

I started by stamping the background using some stamps from STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements in Distress Inks in various blues. Then I stamped the large Morning Glory stamp in Versamark and heat embossed it in silver. Last, I stamped a sentiment from Lotus Love in Peacock Feathers, die cut the panel using a stitched die and attached to turquoise card. Quick, clean, simple and easy with lots of fun stamping!

I am linking up with the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers - inspiration image (inspired by the blue and teal colours against the white, and the silver and glitter)
CASology - Open (the way the large flower is open against the buds, as well as open white space)
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
House of Cards - Embossing
Sparkle N' Sprinkle - Use loose glitter, embossing powder or flocking

Card: Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay card, Hobbycraft 160 gsm card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Morning Glory, Mixed Media Elements, Lotus Love
Ink: Tsukineko Versamark, Tim Holtz Distress Inks Blueprint Sketch, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac
Other: Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies, Papermania Silver embossing powder
