Simple-eee a Thistle.

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
Time for a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More
and it's our popular CAS (Clean and Simple)
Sometimes they are sooooooo hard to do - 
you just want to add just that little bit more don't you?
This time round I had my cas hat on and came up with this - 

I decided to use the old faithful Distress Ink in
Dusty Concord and smooched away. Added a bit
of iridescent medium for shimmer.
I then got out my new Black Wax and
 Dreamweaver Thistle stencil sponging 
to get the coverage. 
Added this to a thin background of black.
Heat Embossed my SU Happy Birthday,
attach to white cs as a frame then to
my purple card stock and my CAS card was done.

Pop over and see more CAS styles from the Team
and come join us in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in.
