CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #20

TGIF, right?  It has been a pretty fun week here, as the Kansas State Fair has been going on!  I have had my fair share of food that is terrible for you and terribly yummy!  That being said....my husband and I are going to go back ONE more time...with no kiddos!  My last bad-for-me-food?  An apple dumpling! Yay!!  I told the sitter today, we are going back to see the boring stuff the kids don't want to see which includes NO midway!!     I won't step foot back there till next year!  And they won't even know they are missing out on Apple dumplings! 

OK, so on to today's CAS-ual Fridays challenge!  Mini cards!!  

Here is my mini card for valentines day...

I embossed part way down with a Cuttlebug folder on this 4x4 card.  I added some saddle stitch ribbon and then the nestie rectangle wtih the sentiment to cover up that seem.  Then I added the hearts all popped up with foam tape.  And one tiny black pearl....just because I felt like it!  :)

Here is today's challenge....


And here is our Sponsor for the week....

  1. I almost bought that lovely embossing folder the other day, and then I talked myself out of it in an effort to be "good." That'll teach me!

  3. I think I need to come live with you for awhile so that I can clone myself with your style. I love how you can add dimension to your cards yet still keep them so CAS. Gorgeous.

  23. Love, love, love this card! Those hearts are adorable stacked like that, great color combo! This is a little off topic, but I must ask where or what brand your white cardstock with the slight texture is that I see keep popping up in your cards?
