Congratulations .... is Today's card....
I have used the sponsors products Stamplorations over at CASology to make this CAS card.
Their challenge this week is Congratulations.....
I was inspired by the Card made by Shelly at Stamplorations CASEplorations June Challenge
I first noticed the gold ring and the delicate colours and flowers.
The 'Gold Ring' was achieved by stamping individual stamps and heat embossing.
I have used clear and gold embossing powder. 
The stamp set is Frames and Flowers and comes with lots of individual small flowers 
and leaves, which I made into the ring.
I continued the circle theme, inside the ring with the retro circles stencil, distress inks 
and white gesso over the top.
I wanted the soft look of Shelly's card.
The larger flowers have been stamped from another Stamplorations set and lightly coloured.
I finished with stamping the Congratulations sentiment in black.
It took me awhile to get the card how I wanted it 
but I got there and enjoyed learning along the way....and had fun.
Thanks for stopping by.
