Entering a Challenge!

I've decided to enter a challenge!  They say you need to start somewhere and I decided that I'd give entering a challenge a go - a bit daunting entering your first challenge, but crafters are kind and considerate people so I am sure it will all be ok.

CAS #164 challenge was a sketch; you can move things around so they don't to match the sketch directly, which was a good thing for me.

My take on the ketch is below;

Pretty simple and so quick to make. I used a Whisper White, love Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White for card based!  The mat is Melon Mambo and the stamping is Bermuda Bay.  I had to add a little bit of bling and thought that the Bermuda Bay sequin trim was what was called for. 

The flourish is the Timeless Textures stamp and I just love it; and the thanks is from Another Thank you set; has a great variety of Thank you fonts!

I hope that you like the card and that you too find the time to enter a Challenge - does make you get your thinking caps on!
