CAS Challenge Monday

What a great week for challenges!! Just about everyone out there has a challenge revolving around hearts, love, and/or Valentine's. :) Super fun stuff.

A close up of the little button and the super sweet stamp.

The heart cut out. The picture was found on the internet, converted to an .scut file, and cut on my Cricut. A shadow was also cut for this heart - the Berry Blast layer under the dp. Using pop dots gave this die cut a little more dimension. :)

Here's my finished card. It has a CAS style, but with a couple of different elements.

Card Recipe -
Stamps - Sweet Heart (you can get this set FREE with a qualifying order at
Paper - kiwi delight, orange whip, berry blast, dp, white
