An Exciting Announcement!!

Happy Hump Day everyone!! I hope that you are all having a fabulous week!! I know I am.

Today I am here to share with you something I have been sitting on for a while and have had to keep under my hat. I am now a member of CAS-ual Friday Design Team, The Ink Squad!!

I was tickled pink when Michele asked me to join. I LOVE the products and have had so much fun using them. The other members of the team are amazing and I am humbled to be in the mix.

I created a card over at the CAS-ual Friday Blog with a step by step. Here is a sneak peek!

I also decided to create a card just for my blog.

I used CAS-ual Fridays "Casual Comfort" stamp set, the "Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies" and the "Linked Fri-Dies".

I used Ranger Distress Ink's in Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron on watercolor paper to create my green background. I then used mist spray in teal, green and gold over it to get the effect I wanted.

I then die cut some links out of white card stock and layered them one the top in a pattern. I did a lot of altering on them to create the design I wanted. I then adhered the watercolor paper to a white card base.

I used the "Casual Comfort" stamp set for the sympathy sentiment, which I stamped in gold pigment ink onto vellum and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I adhered the vellum over the card front and added a gold butterfly from Martha Stewart that I punched out of gold card stock.

My last step was to adhere gold hearts that I had die cut using the "Fun Fetti" Fri-Dies and some green sequins.
