AAA CAS Cards Challenge #90

Hello there friends, another fortnight has zipped by and it's time for another challenge over at AAA CAS Cards. The theme for this one is EMBOSSING and I've a bit of a two-fer for you today.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers so it seemed only right that I use their products for this one. I started out by creating a background using the Mix Mash set with Altenew Inks (my favourite inks right now). For the first card I've placed a piece of my BG behind 2 popped up die-cut sections using Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped border dies which were dry-embossed too. I've then heat-embossed the butterfly from Butterfly Birthday and the sentiment from Doodled Flowers.

The second card is mega simple; just using another piece of the BG created for the first one and popped up on 3d foam with a heat-embossed sentiment from Happy Little Stampers and some gems to finish.

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday is 'Going Dotty' so as the Mix Mash set includes lots of 'Dots' I'm going to try my chances there with this one and I'd also like to pop across to Addicted to Stamps and More where it's an Anything Goes week.

As always there's plenty more super CAS creations by my fellow teamies, with links to their blogs on the AAA Cards blog HERE

We are also joined by Deidre of Eyes Wide Open Arts, a previous winner of our challenges, who is Guest Designing for this one. Do pop along and visit her blog and leave a friendly word and some love - I'm sure she'll appreciate it.

Thanks for calling by my blog today and I hope you feel inspired to play along with us!
