CAS-ual Fridays 16


Just playin' along with CAS-ual Fridays embossing challenge.  I sure do love this challenge blog.  They have a wonderful DT that offer so much inspiration.  Here's my card with a dry embossed strip across the top.


The silhouette image is one I recently inherited from my friend Karol's stash.  After she passed away her family gave our little stamping group ALL of her stamping goodies.  So many of those items are wonderful reminders of Karol and her generous spirit.




All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   Happy Trails - sentiment, inclinations (Penny Black)
Paper:   Raspberry Fizz, white. black
Ink:   Rosebud (memento)
Other:  With Love embossing border (cuttlebug), rhinestones colored with Copic marker

How kind of Karol's family to think of her friends. I'm very sorry for your loss Sara. Gorgeous card...I love the dots and how you picked up the design element in the rhinestones. Beautiful.
