CAS-ual Fridays Exciting News!

If you're used to popping in here on Fridays, I am normally up with my CAS-ual Fridays Challenge card.  Last week, I mentioned that I'd no longer be on the challenge team, but GUESS WHAT?!  I have some very exciting news!  Michele has ask me to continue with CAS-ual Fridays as a designer for her stamps.  She's split the team into two:  one team for the challenge blog and another for her stamps.  I'm beyond thrilled to continue to work with Michele and her gorgeous stamps.  Let me tell you, you'll continue to love the stamps she is creating!  I've seen a sneak of March and April...and they are amazing!

So while we're talking about CAS-ual Friday stamps, how about a couple cards using them!  First up is a card using the Beanstalk stamp set.   I was inspired by the color palette in this week's MUSE card.  To add a touch of gradient stamping, I stamped each of the patterns off once.  
 
The next card takes on a slightly more graphic feel.  I used two sets for this card:  Big Thanks and Loving Thoughts.  I used a circle punch to punch out the floral images and dimensionals to pop up the sentiment and the flowers.  I love the soft, graphic feel of this layout. 
Now, I'm not the only one with this exciting news today!  Be sure to hop on over to CAS-ual Fridays and check out the awesome design team!  The girls sharing the fabulous news with me today are:
