Cas-ual Fridays



Click Here for Info



 The cas-ual Friday challenge is…. Use text and keep it CAS . I knew right away this die I bought about a month ago was going to be just perfect….Tall Birch  Memory Box. I stamped some vintage cream cardstock with a script stamp…Faded Text Background from Stampabilities  then cut the die. Since it's not winter I added a few leaves from Faith & Hope PTT. I am having trouble with my camera so this was the best I could do, after many photos.
 Take Care
Stamps: Stampabilities and Papertrey Ink ..Faith & Hope
Die: Tall Birch Memory box
Cardstock : Papertrey Ink
