Casual Elegance

Hey there!  I have a couple cards to share today for the new CAS-ual Fridays release!  Today's set is called Casual Elegance and it is full of amazing sentiments and gorgeous leaves.

Here is my first card...


For this first card, I stamped everything in PTI's Fresh Snow ink and the colored in the petals and leaves with Copics.  I ran it through with the Linen impression plate for some texture and then added in some pearls to finish it off.

One more card...


I embossed the leaves in white embossing powder and then added in some distress inks.  I added the panel to the white card front and then popped that up with foam tape.  A little twine and a fun sentiment and that's it!

I know there is much more to see over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog.  Stop over at see what the other girls have cooked up for today!

Thanks for coming by!
