Addicted to CAS #88 - Midnight


Hello again ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and this time our Code Word is Midnight! A few details: Our Hostess is Carolyn, and our Guest Designer is Rahmat. Sami Stamps is sponsoring this challenge, and they are offering the winner a $12.00 gift certificate!

Here is my card:



I blended several distress inks for the background, then die cut the New York Skyline from MFT for my focal point, The fireworks and sentiment are from The Ton.

My teammates have created some amazing cards for this challenge...I hope you'll stop by the ATCAS Blog to check them out, and that you'll play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
