Addicted To CAS #72

Hi friends, I'm back and this time it's with details
of the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS

Our super sweet and talented teamie, Doni of Lime Green Giggles
(isn't that just the sweetest blog name too!) is hosting 
and she's chosen the perfect Autumnal Codeword: Leaves

So please make sure it's Clean and Simple with Leaves!

Having die-cut my leaves using a Marianne Creatables die I stupidly inked them with 
distress inks afterwards! I should have inked first I think as it was pretty fiddly! 
I adhered them to my panel along with the sentiment banner from Clearly Besotted, 
popped up on 3d foam before thinking ... hmmm! bit bland!
So I went hell-for-leather with the distress inks and inked, blended, inked, blended
 ... you get the picture! all over the edges of my cardbase and I liked it much better!


I hope you feel inspired to join in and don't forget to head across to the ATCAS blog
to see the stunning work by my teamies there ... AND what's more 

we have another wonderful sponsor for the challenge

The winner will receive one stamp set worth 12.50 euro.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back again tomorrow with
details of the latest challenge at AAA Cards so hope to catch you then!
