 Hi everyone,
 I'm back again, can you believe it?
I have two cards to share with you today, both CAS!

The first is an A6 Kraft base.
I embossed two lots of two lines, not sure they're showing very well in the photo.
I then wrapped some some button twine around & tied in a bow.
I added a die cut flower & hello, are from some lovely blog candy that I got
a while back, from the lovely CG. I've used some of the bits & pieces 
up  already but still have lots left!
I rounded the corner with a woodware punch & added a panel inside
for a message to be written on.
I'd like to enter this card in the challenge at:
CAS-ual Fridays - Use Kraft, Flowers & Twine
City Crafter Challenge- Take an element from the showcased card & make your own.
Card Mania - Flowers
Simply Create Too - No Digi or Stamped image
TIME OUT Challenges 'You can't make a Rainbow without a little Rain'  (Little)

The second is a 6"x6" sqaure linen embossed cs base.
I added another of the diecut hello's from CG.
I added a couple of embossed lines at the bottom
then created a border using a Sakura Stardust gel pen.
I tried lots of other little embellishments, but on my way home from
work I had a lightbulb moment & decided to use buttons.
The best colour match were these little heart buttons which I've had
in my stash for ever. It was a tiny little packet, with 3 different sizes
& they seem to be never ending! lol
