Two Challenges

I have two  cards for two related challenges--one of which is brand new.


Here is my card.

I love this shade of purple/violet with gold.  I heat embossed some circles, and then added the sentiment. I cut down the circle panel and mounted it above the sentiment.

Next Up the new challenge from Cas-ual Fridays  CAS-ual Chic, and their first challenge.

I've added lots of layers to this version. Dry embossing with a Stampin Up embossing folder, then a panel gold embossed with more circles.  Finally the sentiment strip is also mounted with foam.  A bit of gold string finishes the card.  Both cards us the Casual Friday's stamp set Big Thanks.

Thanks for stopping by.
