Craft Your Days Away and Paperplay Challenges


The challenge this week at Craft Your Days Away was Anything Goes (my favorite) and Paperplay Challenges was CAS (my favorite style) so I had fun with this card. The side is a new Tim Holtz border diecut- love the look over the white paper. The background is embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder (love his stuff:) I cut and embossed the oval with my nesties and while the oval was still on, sponged the blue. Then stamped a beautiful single tree from a rented set from Raisin Boat and my CAS card was done.

Stamping smiles (and welcome to my Feline Playful friends!),
