Addicted to CAS Card Challenge

Hello and welcome to a brand new challenge at Addicted to CAS hosted by Raga.
Here's the theme she has chosen:

I guess I didn't realize how many stamps, dies, and stencils I had with shapes...not to mention in a variety of sizes, too! In the end, I decided to use a diamond stencil and dies.

Please excuse the glare. I tried photographing this card from every angle and between the silver foil cardstock and the silver embossing powder, I couldn't get a nice clean shot! After stenciling the diamond pattern and placing the die-cuts, I added this new layered bloom from Altenew. Lastly, I added a few crystal gems, and this card was finished ~

We would love to see how the code word ‘Shapes’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and play along with us, come on over and check out the ATCAS Blog

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: MFT - Happy Hummingbirds (sentiment)
Dies: Altenew - Craft-a-Flower 'Cosmos', Fine Frames 'Diamonds'
Stencils: Funky Fossil Designs - Distressed Diamonds
Misc: Pretty Pink Posh - Clear gems; DCWV - Foil Cardstock (Metallics); Altenew - Antique Silver Embossing Powder
