Today's card is for a new to me challenge that I've seen the link to on some of my friend's blogs. It's called CAS-ual Fridays. You know me, I'm a CAS kind of gal so I had to check it out. This week's challenge is to put bling on a card. I can handle that!
The layout is from this week's CAS challenge at SCS is to do a card inspired by a sketch by Regina. (You can see her card on the bottom of the CAS challenge link.)
I tried to use decorative paper, I really did and then went with my Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I hope you aren't getting sick of seeing it, because I seem to keep pulling it out.
The flowers are some that I embossed and watercolored some time ago. They were stamped with Whisper White on Shimmery White cardstock then heat embossed. I used the Aquabrush and reinker to paint the flowers with Melon Mambo then cut them out. I tried several ideas for the strip but settled on a piece of So Saffron ribbon with a scrap of DSP over the top. So I did get some decorative paper in!
