Addicted to CAS #83

Hello again friends, it's time to announce our latest challenge over at

Addicted to CAS

and our new-mum Deepti is the host for this one;
She's definitely the proud owner of one perfect little gift!

Here's my card and it was inspired by THIS card by Laura Bassen! 
Her inky-blending is second to none and I couldn't wait to try it out with these 
mini 'gifts' from Clearly Besotted: Out of This World stamp & die set.

I started out with the idea of making it a shaker but some of those gifts
try to get 3-deep behind the acetate and will not budge despite
a rather fierce shake! Laura's cards are always so vibrant and cheery
so hope I've replicated that a little here! The sentiments are Uniko
and I've used a Photo frame die from MFT Die-namics and a little stencilling
to add interest to the base of the card with a dotty-type stencil by Tim Holtz

There's more inspiration from my fellow teamies over on the main blog
and I hope you'll find time to play along with us.

Our sponsor for this one is STAMPlorations and our lucky winner
will receive a $10 voucher to spend in the store.

Have fun and thanks for calling by!
