It is actually what I call a "monochromatic color block" challenge card!  I took those 5 blocks and attached them to a larger mat and then stamped PTI's Text Style down the front!  I used Scor-tape to attach the ruffle and the sparkly ribbon!  Then I popped that up on foam tape and added the sentiment which is popped up on more foam tape!  I really love dimension in cards!  It adds so much! 

SO, this weeks sponsor is Crop Stop!  Be sure and stop over to the CAS-ual Blog to see the prize!  You know its a fun one!


There is also lots more color blocking going on with all the DT girls!  Stop by and leave some love! Thanks for coming by!  Have a great CAS-ual Friday!
