CAS card

Good day everyone! I had some fun playing around with a CAS card for a couple of challenges this afternoon. First of all, I haven't had the chance to try my big kick yet with some chipboard and think I have a new addiction - LOL! So fun it is! And easy too! Second, I got a chance to play around with a couple of my favourite CTMH stamp sets. I really do love the My Acrylix stamps. I am still sort of new to the CAS style, so let me know what you think.

Close up of flower:

Cardstock - white - Gina K heavy weight; chocolate & watermelon - CTMH
Ink - CTMH chocolate and watermelon
Die - Tim Holtz - Tattered Florals (Sizzix)
Stamp set - Adorable; Thanks so Much - CTMH

Thread - Making Memories

I made this card for the following challenges:

CASual Fridays Blog - create a project using chipboard
Outlawz - CAS challenge - white base - no pattern paper
Fun with Shapes and More - no black lines

Warm Hugs,
