Guest Designer - CAS Mix Up Challenge




Hi there, blog friends ~
One of my new favorite challenges is CAS Mix Up Challenge, which started in February by Loll & Bonnie! I was delighted to find out that my card was chosen as the 'Monthly Pick' for April, and today, I am honored to share my card as their Guest Designer for June...thank you both so much!



The parameters for this month are stamping, die cuts and our choice, and I chose watercoloring with Brushos. The sunflower is part of a PTI cover plate die, and the sentiment is from SSS 'You' stamps and die set. I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the center of the flower, and a few Rain Stones for some sparkle. And, that was it!

Bonnie and Loll have a great team, and they have all created gorgeous cards for this challenge...I hope you have a chance to check out the CAS Mix Up Blog and play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Congrats on your GD gig. Unfortunately for me and my wallet, now I have to go right over to the PTI store and buy that cover plate. After all, I love my brushes, and they will never forgive me if I don't buy the cover plate, now that I have seen your glorious creation made with it. Incredibly simple, but packs a huge WOW! Love it Barb.
