CASology celebrates 5 years!


SO VERY EXCITED TO JOIN YOU ALL!
My first design team was CASology, 
and I'm so very
happy that I have retained 
my friendships and will
always consider these wonderful 
ladies paper
 crafting buddies!


The CUE for this momentus occasion, 
is BALLOON

 I die cut 3 balloons and on a 4x3 panel I sponged Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide
and then spritzed some water.
Added my Sentiments 
and copic colored the die cut balloons.  

On one balloon I inked up and 
added a funny face from 
the Lawn Fawn Set Sweet Smiles.
 Adhered the balloons with foam
 mount and hand drew
 a few dangling strings.

The HUBBY really likes this card..
So it's a win for me!

 

There are so many prizes and 
companies joining, Yippee!  
Awesome
Job Melissa!
