Addicted to CAS Challenge #85


Hello there, blog friends ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Inlaid Dies'! Here are the details:
- Our Hostess is Sarah
- Our Sponsor is Happy Little Stampers, and the winner of this challenge will receive a gift certificate for $15.00 to the store 
- Our Guest Designer is Shawna Standish

 Here is my card:



I stamped the feather with Hero Arts Ombre inks and the sentiment was embossed with Liquid Platinum (from PTI 6th Anniversary Stamp Set, no longer available). A few silver sequins and a stitched/scalloped die cut frame on the front panel...and that was it!

We would love to have you visit the challenge blog at ATCAS to see what the team has created for this Code Word, and play along with us...Hope to see you there! 

Thanks for stopping by ~ Have a great weekend,

Totally elegant Barb as always - I'd expect nothing less from you. Love the ombre stamping ... I always forget to use those inks! You've given me a nudge and inspiration to dig them out now. Great take on the inlaid die technique too. Love it. Sarah x
