CAS-ology: Metal

  Hello crafters!
Popping in with a little late night post for CAS-ology's current challenge.
Before we get to my card I just wanted to share my pure unadulterated love for Ardyth's DT card. Did you see that thing?! It's amazing! I love simple striking designs and that baby is brilliant. You can check it out on her personal blog MASKerade. You should probably check out everything else she has going on over there too because her design is always phenomenal.
Okay now on to my take
I used a new set from Newton's Nook called Versatile Vases. I love everything about this set! The images are just too adorable :)
I stamped the vase and the flowers directly onto my card base then drew a cute little box around it. I saw this somewhere . . . a Nichole Heady card maybe . . .I'll try to look it up. Anyway, I saw it and thought it was fabulous. I stamped the flowers and vases again, colored them and fussy cut them. There is something about those neon colors with the silver/gray I just adore.
The blooms got a coat of stickles while the vase was covered in glossy accents. Metal has to be shiny right? I just adhered them right over the stamped images on the card base and was finished.
Thanks for visiting!
