Well hi there blogland!  WOW I have been MIA lately!  It all started with a serious slump in my mojo.... after all kinds of mass-production of cards plus a busy schedule really left me feeling non-creative!  But now, school is OUT for the summer (YAY!) and so I've got lots and LOTS of crafting time on my hands!  =D  Finally, I came up with this CAS card yesterday:
This card is very simple, but I love how it turned out!  I cut the flower and leaves out of some fabulous paper from American Crafts A La Carte line!  I popped up the flower with some foam adhesive, and added some stickles and glossy accents to the center.  Then, I added some of my favorite Thickers (American Crafts again!) and some black Rhinestones for a little bling!  =)

It's been a long time since I made a card without any stamps, but it was super fun!  I was inspired by several different challenges for this card:
* The Play Date Cafe #84
* Wee Memories #59 - Anything Goes
* Tuesday Throwdown #51 - Make Your Own Embellishments (mine is that fabulous flower from the patterned paper!) 
Well, that's all for me today!  I'll be back soon with more fun and exciting creations!  Keep making beautiful things, I've really enjoyed looking at your creations in the last few weeks, though I haven't had much time to leave comments!  =)  Happy Monday everyone!
