Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #184




Hi there ~

It's time for another CAS Challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! Stamplorations has been very generous to sponsor this challenge with a $10.00 gift certificate to the store. Here is my card:




This Songbird stamp and die set from PTI is so pretty...I love the swirly musical notes and the different birds they offer in this set. I hand cut the foil strip to match, and colored the flower and leaves with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Penny Black, and I inked it to create an ombre effect, then added a few star shaped sequins for fun...Of course my favorite thing about a CAS card is tons of white space :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ I hope you'll check out my team mates beautiful cards over at the ATSM Blog, and join us for the challenge ~

Barb, this is so pretty, I love every little inch of it. The bird colouring, music strip, foil strip sentiment. I want them all. Looks fantastic and the foil strip is just wonderful, I actually thought there must have been a die.
