CAS on Sunday’s First Challenge


I have been waiting like forever to make this post (well maybe not forever …but at least 10 days)!

The theme for our first challenge over at CAS on Sunday is “Be Mine Valentine.”

I had so much fun putting today’s CAS card together, although it took a couple takes to get the red background just right!

I wasn’t patient enough and kept smearing it with my fingers before the ink had a chance to dry. :/

I made the background using a old stamp set from Stampin Up called Branching Out.

The stamp was used primarily in this set to make the leaves of the trees in any color you chose.

I decided to use it as a background splat! LOL

I took a photo of the stamp so you had an idea of what on earth I was talking about.

Well, that’s it for me today! I will be back tomorrow with another card!

Now, make sure you head on over to CAS on Sunday and see what my fellow

DT members have to offer.  And please join our first challenge because there is a prize involved…

and we all love to win prizes…don’t we?

This week our prize is being sponsored by Team Utopia (Stampin’ Up demoteam).


More details of my card will be at the bottom of this post!


Love take 2


My inspiration for this card came from a card I saw on Pinterest awhile back!  Here is a link to Dawn’s beautiful work!
