Addicted to CAS - Challenge #121

Hi there, blog friends ~ It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS! Ellenor is our Hostess, and she has chosen the code word...'Favorite Stamp'! Suffice it to say I have a few faves, so I had to narrow it down and decided on this stamp set:

What I like about this stamp set is that it has several elegant sentiments and the flowers are so pretty! I created the ombre effect with PTI inks (See This Video tutorial by Laurie Willison) and embossed the center of the blooms in gold.

Happy Little Stampers is sponsoring this challenge, and Kylie is offering a $15.00 GC for the winner...surely you have a least one fave in your stash, right? We would love to see your creation in the ATCAS gallery if you're interested in joining us!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Graceful Greetings
Ink: PTI - Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal; MFT - Ripe Raspberry; Hero Arts - Bubblegum, Green Hills; Versamark
Misc: WOW Metallic Gold EP; Lucie's Things Jewels 

Thanks so much for stopping by,
