CAS? I don't think so.

So the Monday Challenge between AJ, Maren, Jimmi, Jeanne, Brooke, and Jen Buck was "CAS" style cards. Well, for one, CAS is sort of a curse word on my blog. It just doesn't happen often...and it's sort of against my religion! BUT I was really going to try. Really I was! My card was just going to spell "Be Mine" with these super cool letters cut from my Storybook cart for my Cricut and that's it. Well, then I decided to emboss some hearts from Hundred Hearts (Verve) on the card base...add some ribbon...some bling...some silver cord...and there goes CAS, flying out the window!
I do realize that there is no way this card is going in a regular envelope, lol! But that's okay by me:) I have no problem paying extra postage for a card this fun! Here is a close-up of the ribbon detail:
I have problems, I know:) But seriously, how awesome is that ribbon? I also embossed a big chubby heart from Hundred Hearts in black, cut it out, and then attached it to the ribbon with silver cord. It's a really fun detail that doesn't really come across the screen so well...

Anyways, this card is also my sample for my color challenge this week for the Verve January Release Week challenge! You simply MUST come play with us this week! There are FOUR other challenges posted! You have until Friday to get your cards uploaded and you could win some SERIOUS Verve loot!

Don't forget to check out AJ, Maren, Brooke, Jeanne, Jimmie, and Jen Buck's cards today! Maybe they had better luck with CAS than I did;)
