Addicted to CAS Challenge #73


Hi everyone,
It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our hostess is the incredibly talented Sweet Kobylkin, and she has chosen the code word 'Dream' for our inspiration. Scribbles Designs is our Sponsor, and they are offering three digital images for the winner. I've created 2 cards for this challenge:
  


For my first cad, I blended two shades of blue on the word dream to create an ombre effect, and thought this sweet little Mama Elephant cherub would look cute perched on top of the cloud. I also blended SSS Sea Glass ink behind both elements to add some depth to the design, and scattered the silver star sequins so it would look like a cloud in the sky.

*****

For my 2nd card, I wanted to celebrate the beginning of my favorite season...Autumn ~





I used two of my PTI stamp sets for this card...For the sentiment, I used my MISTI, and inked the  'Daydreamer' set with Orange Zest and black, and stamped the blooms with 'Mum's the Word' in Harvest Gold and New Leaf. Lastly, I framed it out with Mega Mat Stacks 3 and added a few sparkly gems...and that was it! I hope there is enough white space on this card to be considered CAS :)

Visit the Addicted to CAS Blog to see what my team mates have created for this challenge, and please join us...we would love to see your cards in the gallery! 
Thanks so much for stopping by...Have a great weekend ~

Fab dreamy designs Barb, love the little cherub and the script die on the bed of fluffy clouds.
Thank you so much for all those lovely comments you left on my blog. Cards are a lot easier to make when the stamps are so easy to use like those of Dee's. :)
