CAS Pixie Post




I was in the mood to create a CAS card, so I could let these beautiful papers be highlighted. I used the Fall to Layout sketch and will enter this into the Verve Fan Hop - deadline tomorrow at noon. I had such a fun day shopping with my good friend, Teresa, today! I laughed until tears ran down my face...the 2 hour trip seemed like 20 minutes with so much to talk about and share! The papers and lace were some of the fun new supplies I found - lace at Hobby Lobby...papers at Scrapdoodles. The flower was stamped using Early Espresso ink, cut out and popped with foam dots.
STAMPS: Dream Big (Verve) - sentiment; One Person (Verve) - flower
PAPER: Pixie Post by Graphic 45; Stella & Rose "Hazel" paper by My Mind's Eye (flower); Stella & Rose Gertie "You & Me" paper by My Mind's Eye (leaves).
INK: Early Espresso
ACCESSORIES: Corner chomper, Brad, Lace, Chocolate satin ribbon, Die-namic by MFT.

Beautiful card, Wanda! I love your flower with the pearl in the center and those papers are so pretty, they deserve to not be covered!
It's always fun to shop with fellow stampers, isn't it? I've had some of the best times of my life shopping with stamp buddies! :)
Have a great weekend!
