Wee Memories CAS Challenge!

**Scroll down for today's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Post!**

Happy Friday to everyone! Today is bittersweet for me! I found out this morning that I am done with Gallery Idol! It would have been fun to go on but the sweet part? I can go back to life as I know it! In that respect, it is a good feeling! I may actually get some cleaning done instead of worrying about a card! LOL!

I have had the BEST time with each challenge and getting to know all the other girls! I am SO excited to see who will be THE Gallery Idol next week! I am cheering for them all!

So today I have a card for the Wee Memories CAS Challenge! CAS? Yep...that's me! Anytime I see CAS, I have to jump in!  I also linked this up over at SCS for their F4A75 CAS challenge today!
Here is my card....

I cut out 4 PTI's Tea for Two Collection-Label dies for this!  I stamped Text Style background on to each label!  Using a 3/4" punch,  I punched out a circle from each label!  After positioning them on to the card front, I stamped 2 flowers from Beautiful Botanicals in to the center, directly on the card base!  After stamping this Verve sentiment, I ran the card base through with the Linen IP!  I took foam tape and then popped each label up for some dimension!  Of course I had to add a silver pearl to each flower!  :)  Oh and round a corner too!  Of course right?  :)

Here is this week's Challenge link....


Thank you again to all my blog friends for voting and being so supportive during Gallery Idol!  I had a blast!  

Now on to regularly scheduled programming.... :)
