CAS Mix-Up June Challenge

Yeah I am so happy to see another CAS Mix Up Challenge for the new month!
Can you believe it is JUNE already?  Yikes, the kiddos have one more week of school, then summertime!!  We have a busy July coming up with lots of family time...and away from computers and all my stamping stuff (say WITHDRAWALS!!)

So the new mix up is: stamping +die cuts + your choice
I used a TCW (The Crafters Workshop) mini chicken wire stencil with scattered straw distress ink. My flower is a Verve: Beautiful Things that I colored with my copics.
The leaves and sentiment are from an Altenew stamp: Majestic Bloom.
I finished the card off with a few PPP clear sequins.
I used a piece of foam to raise the top panel for dimension.

Thank you for stopping and taking a look, I hope you will join in this challenge, you have all month to link up.  There are some amazing cards being showcased over the CAS Mix Up Blog 
by Loll and Bonnie and the rest of the design team, go check it out!!


Heart Hugs, friends!
