Anything Goes in CAS Style

Where do the weekends go? I can hardly believe we are headed to Monday already. I was away from the Internet this weekend so I am late in posting the new challenge at the Outlawz CAS challenge. This week is easy peasy! The challenge is anything goes as long as it's CAS. Here's my card.


I used the ink smooshing technique for the background. I heat embossed the sentiment and the embellishments with white embossing powder, the ink smooshed the background with distress inks: fired brick, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and cracked pistachio. I cut the background out with the largest Spellbinder's Lattice Rectangles. The image is the digi of the month at Imagine That! called Maggie's Apples. I used the pre-colored image, fussy cut it and popped it up from the framed sentiment. I added it to the card blank.
I am entering these challenges:

I hope you'll check out this week's anything goes CAS challenge at Outlawz. We have a PaperTrey Ink gift certificate up for grabs. Thanks for stopping by and hope your weekend has been fantastic!

Donna, that's a great looking background with the smoosh technique. Mine never looked this pretty...more washed out than your fall tones. It looks so nice with the cute digi perched atop this, and that was a good choice of the S/B die. Wonderful card! TFS & Hugs
