Corking it for the CAS Mix Up Challenge.

Hey there I'm Back!
I have just spent the most amazing few weeks of
 fun filled craft time with my bff
creating and trying out new things.
This was the first card I made and is for the
I just had to wait till I got home 
so I could add to my Blog. 
I knew as soon as I saw the Mix I knew I wanted to use cork.
My friend has an EBosser so the cork die just cut out beautifully.
I think I will add this to my Wishlist for the future as I loved using it.
It is from Tim Holtz Wildflowers.
This was such a cas quick card to make.
All I needed was the cream card stock
my cork wild flower, an inked up sentiment
using distress inks and distressing/inking the edges.
My Mix is - Cork, Die Cut, Distressing and Stamping.
You will find that some of my postings 
will be a little light on with products
I used while I was away as there was so much going on
I didn't get time to write it all down.
Too busy playing! 
Hope you like what I made. Love to read your thoughts!
Thanks for dropping by.

Ooooh, this is awesome. I love the die cut cork, who knew? - and I do have cork sheets, so I will definitely be giving this a try! The card is so natural - love that you kept it monochromatic, just with the inked distressed edges. Beautiful!
