CAS... (well it is for me.. lol )

Good morning bloggers... Hope you are all well and had a good weekend..
Sorry for my lack of posting, i have not felt like crafting much last week but am feeling much better now, thanks for all the get well wishes (they really cheered me up xxx).
I had a few hours of play time last night to catch up on a few challenges that I have been wanting to enter so there may be a few posts today (apologises in advance if I start to get on your nerves lol)
My first card is one that I am quite happy with, I have attempted a cas style which I do not do very often and it is also the FIRST time ever I have used distress inks to colour, I know its far from perfect but I was quite pleased with my first attempt, let me know what you think and any tips would be very much appreciated....
The back ground is embossed with an heart embossing folders, red ribbon and gems from my stash.. I handcut the flag from red mirri board and printed the 'For a beary sweet girl' sentiment from Beary sweet collection digi stamps..
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I'm going to get ready now to pick my baba up from Preschool.
Back later with my second card..
hugs Kelly x

It looks a pretty good CAS style to me Kelly, a really clean crisp feel to it.

Thanks for your kind words over the weekend.

I love it. I also own these stamps and being a bit blonde said to my Hubby last week- aren't these the stupidist stamps you've ever seen? I mean what are you supposed to do with them with their arms up in the air like that!
To which he pointed out that they could be holding a balloon or something. Doh!
