Make Your Heart Sing for ATCAS

We're back around to another challenge from 
Addicted to CAS


Barb (Barb's Studio Creations) is our hostess this week. 
This is what she chose.


Pia (Pia's Creative World) is our Guest Designer this month.
Do check out her lovely creations.

Eureka Stamps is our sponsor for this challenge and
they're offering 3 digi images to the winner.
They have some lovely designs that I've been hoping to win for some time!



I'm going to enter this in our sister challenge
Addicted to Stamps
Addicted to Stamps and More!
ANYTHING GOES

    **********
I had this piece of Alcohol Inked background out 
and thought it would do well for the gold.

I trimmed it up, stamped the sentiment, added a little die cut butterfly
 and some pearls.  Done!

Be sure to check out all the Design Team's inspiration! Wow!

And I hope you'll create a CAS (Clean And Simple) card 
with black, white and gold and join us at ATCAS.

Glad you stopped by.

Enjoy!

Gorgeous card - love the one rounded corner (why don't I ever think of that?!). Great color scheme for that expression, too.
