CAS-ual Fridays Stamps- New Release (Day 1)

Hello! For the next few days, we are going to be sharing the new release from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! Woohoo! Today is Day 1 and the stamp that is being featured is "Wheat Wreath". It has this intricate design of a wreath. You really don't need to embellish much with an image like this.
I absolutely love it!

love and blessings
 As you can see, there is a bit of shimmer inside the circle diecut. I had previously sprayed Gold Shmimmer Spritz by Tsukineko and after it dried, I stamped the sentiment. For the wreath, I simply embossed it in gold and made the hollow diecut circle. Add sequins and dyed ribbons (thanks to Donna Mikasa). Done!

What do you think? Join the fun and check out the new stamped designs that my talented fellow CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Ink Squad have created for you.

Here's to love and blessings...my favorite photo of our family trip to Europe.

Thanks for stopping by!
