A Mid Month 'Reminder' for CAS Anything Goes at STAMPlorations

It's that time of the month when we send out a 'REMINDER'
just in case you got side tracked and forgot to play at the
CAS Anything Goes Challenge over at STAMPlorations
Details are Here
I started my card using water colour paper and heat embossing
my flowers in white. Added some Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral
Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade from Tim Holtz
 to my craft sheet and started blending the beautiful blooms
from STAMPloration Floral Bliss
I touched up the background lightly with a bit of
stencilling from ARTplorations Retro Circles
My sentiment is STAMPlorations by Noteworthy
inked with Memento London Fog 
I just love that set. The font is fabulous don't you think?
Added some sponging around the flowers to finish
and popped.
I have been playing around with stencils and mixed media lately
and thought I would add this one to show you the
result I got from stencilling some Bluestone Sparkle Medium
through my ARTplorations Nestles Circles.
To add to this -
I then layered the word Happy from
CUTplorations  Happy Word Die in
grey aqua and silver.
Finished with a Birthday stamp cut from a
stitched Die from MFT and a few gems.
Why the Reminder? There is even more reason to play -
You can link up to 3 CAS cards.
 Can enter a CAS card with or without the optional color twist.
Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
Beginning with this challenge, one winner (voted by the design team) will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store, while the two top picks will each receive a $5 gift certificate. If there are at least 50 entries, we'll also draw a random winner and she gets to choose her prize -- a 3x5 stamp set OR 2 standard size stencils OR 1 CUTplorations word/phrase die. 
and don't forget the 20% discount code on the side bar.
What a great way to start or build up your STAMPloration collection.
Love to see you at the
Thanks for dropping by. I appreciate you taking time out
to leave me your comment.

Red always draws my attention, Ina, and those flowers are beautiful with the stenciling and gray sponging. The blue sparkle through the circles is eye catching too and so gorgeous.
