Announcing... New Girl Friday!

 .
Whoo Hoo!  Some big news to announce today!   I'm happy to share I'm a new Girl Friday at CAS-ual Fridays!  Stop on by CAS-ual Friday's Blog now through the 10th to meet  the new Ink Squad and leave a comment for your chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate! 
Maybe you will find this funny.. I almost didn't try out for the design team because I thought CAS in CAS-ual Friday's meant that I had to be "Clean and Simple".  Michele assures me that all styles are welcome so you're sure to find a style that suits you just find there! 
I couldn't wait to start playing with some of my goodies from CAS-ual Fridays!  Since I love layers and "stacking it on" there are lots of goodies on this card.
I think you are wonderful for stopping by today to say hi - so this one is for you.  The sentiment is from the Lovely Greetings Stamp Set. I used two different die sets for my layered sentiment - Tag Buddies is the bottom tag, and the top tag with the punched lacy bottom is from the Scallop Tag Set.
Peeking out from under the tag are a few cuts from the Casual Trees Set, and a few flowers from Four Petals.  I shaped the flowers with a ball stylus and added a pear center.  Can't find the perfect color pearl?  Just color a plain white one with an alcohol marker.
Before I added the tag to the card base with adhesive foam tape I wrapped twine around the card a few times.   This helps ground the tag so it doesn't look like its floating. 
I like adding buttons or enamel dots under raised items to show off the dimension.  I love the pops of turquoise with the red on this one! 






Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to visit the CAS-ual Fridays Blog to leave a comment to enter to win that $50 gift certificate!  That would be awesome to see you win!   No worries though... everyone is a winner because if you use my special code you'll get 15% off your order at CAS-ual Fridays.  I'll be putting this badge in my side bar so you can find it any time you want to go shopping !





 Here's all the CAS-ual Fridays goodies I used on my card today!
