ADDICTED TO CAS, AND SOME NEWS!

Hi lovely bloggers - it's good to see you!

My card today is for the current fortnightly challenge at Addicted to CAS
The Codeword is "RAINBOW", and you can interpret this in any way you wish.  
There are several days left if you would like to join in, and you can find  some beautiful DT inspiration on the Challenge Blog.
********

Now - onto my News snippet!  
I was thrilled when Kylie, from Addicted to CAS , asked me to join her Design Team, and of course it was a big fat Yes from me!  My new Teamies are a very talented group of ladies, and I am so happy to be working alongside them.

So here I am with my first ATCAS  DT project - I hope you like it!




Recipe:
Aperture and frame cut with Nestabilities Classic Squares.
The rainbow was inked onto the cut-out square, then attached through the aperture, onto the inside of the card.
Distress Inks applied with TH Inkssentials ink applicators. 
Chipped Sapphire, Indigo, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick.
Butterfly - SU Elegant Butterfly punch.
Sentiment - Hero Arts.

Look forward to seeing you soon, at Addicted to CAS!
Have a happy weekend

Hugs,
