Addicted to CAS Challenge #62



Hi everyone,
Time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS, and this time I will be the Hostess and have chosen Black, White & Gold for the color palette! We are also welcoming back our Guest Designer Pia of Pia's Creative World...Love her fabulous card! Our sponsor for this challenge is Eureka Stamps, and the winner will receive three digital images of their choice!
Here is my card:


I kept it really simple by stamping the outline of the flowers in black and the centers (and sentiment) with Delicata Gold ink. I created masks so that I could add dimension by overlapping the flowers, then a rectangle frame to emboss around the image and a scallop border die from Mama Elephant.
Note: Sentiment is from Avery Elle 'Sentimental Swirls' which seems to be discontinued.

That's it for me today...I hope you'll stop by the gallery to see what my teammates have created and play along with us in the challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by,

Barb, the embossed frame is a perfect way to add interest but keep the layers to a minimum. They frame your flowers beautifully. Great challenge, too!
