CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #76

Woot woot!! This is going to be a VERY special CAS-ual Friday's Challenge! We are, for the very first time, having CAS-ual Fridays Stamps as our official sponsor for the challenge!
 
About CAS-ual Fridays Stamps:  
Stamps are the finest quality photopolymer and made in USA. They stamp beautifully if I can give you an honest opinion....The quality is great!
 I am, of course, using the new stamps from Woot Woot for today's challenge!
yeah baby
Can you tell that I had lots of fun putting this card together?  First, I gathered all the sentiment from this set and arranged them all on a square acrylic block. Then STAMP and EMBOSS! Later I realized that I used "it's your birthday!" on the far right corner..., that will not work with the encouraging sentiment! SO....that's when the white paper flower came to the rescue! This was all done after adding the jute and buttons!! This card definitely has more embellishments than I had originally intended, but it works, right?

Now please know that you can use any stamps/ pattern paper to take part in the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. Please
link up your CAS project to CAS-ual Fridays by Thursday Nov. 1, Eastern Time. I can wait to see your Kraft creation!

I am loving that teal embossing with the brown, V! Way to go covering up your little goof with the pretty, white flower! Such a cute, happy card!

Virginia, the embossed teal on brown is gorgeous! And I SO love the pop of red with the twine. You always know how to add that little detail that makes a card become a showstopper!

There you go, coming up with one of your amazing creations again. The freestyle nature of it. The touch of red with those colors. The stamps - well they're pretty cool on their own. The embellies. Cool.
