CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 135

Hey y'all! Today, is my first official post for CAS-ual Fridays challenge!!!...Eek! I'm so excited! :)

As many of you know, CAS-ual Fridays challenge took a little break but today it's back! And we have a totally fun challenge for you to play along with!

So, here's my card!

I totally love it, don't you?!...However, let me be the first to tell you. This card did not come easy for me. I'm not sure if I just felt like I had to come up with something beyond grand or what?!'m seriously thinking my crafty mojo decided to leave me for a bit. Days and days past, before this. 

Though, once I had another one of my ideas, I rolled with it. I started with looking at my vellum, then was trying to think of a good paper to go with it. And luckily I had some. (would have been a bummer, if I couldn't of found anything.) ;) Once done, I trimmed up my papers to fit nicely in the corner. (I used a solid white piece of cardstock under the vellum, which I stamped my 'note' on in black ink.) Before actually adhering my papers, I stamped on my sentiment at a slight angle. Then when done, added my papers. After, I added my felt flower and sequins. Fun, yeah?...

Be sure to swing on over to CAS-ual Fridays to see all the awesome DT creations! And while your there, be sure to join us! :) 

Thanks for stopping by! 
Enjoy your day!
