CAS-ual Fridays #57: Clear as Day


Happy, happy Friday!  I'm happy to be home in my own bed after a few nights away for work this week.  Before I get to this week's challenge, let's have a chat.   Holy cow are your entries amazing each week.   I am so blessed to get to pop over to so many of your blogs and see your gorgeous creations.  Thank you all for participating in our challenges each week. 

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Karolyn Lonson.  She is not only a member of the CAS-ual Friday team, but has also designed six stamps sets for Paper Smooches.  And guess what our prize is for this week?  Karolyn's PS stamps!  Woohoo...I know I'd love them all!

We have a super fun challenge for you this week at CAS-ual Fridays:  Clear as Day - Use acetate or vellum on your project.   I haven't used vellum in a really long time so it was fun to pull it out.  I also used a color combo that I don't use that often:  yellow, orange and brown.  I love the PaperSmooches background set that Karolyn designed, added a leaf die cut and a vellum butterfly.  A touch of bling and we were ready to roll. 
 
Pop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog and take a look at the rest of the design team's takes on this week's challenge.  I'm sure you'll be inspired!
