CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - Girl Friday - February

Hi there everybody and welcome to my CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 'Girl Friday' post for February. 

Love definitely seems to be in the air this month with Valentines Day being close by, so I thought I would bring a bit of 'love' to my card:

I couldn't help using one of my favourite stamps from last weeks release, the Full on Floral background stamp. I stamped it on some water colour CS and heat embossed it with white powder. I then used my mini-blending tool and Distress Ink 'Spun Sugar' to blend over top of it.

To create the windows, I die-cut the larger square from the Funky Square Fri-Dies and cut off the tag portion. I then used the same die on the floral panel. I put tiny pieces of foam tape on the back of the window edges and adhered over top of the flowers. These were then put on the card front.

I didn't want to cover up the flowers too much with a sentiment, so kept it super simple with a sentiment from the Love Notes stamp set on a strip of white CS. I added foam tape under it to hold it up and added some of the new Sistahood Sparkle 'Limited Edition' Sequins for a bit of sparkle.

 I have four challenges I would like to enter:

The Card Concept Challenge #66 

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (The Colour of Love)

AAA Card Challenge # 83 

Uniko Challenge # 39
