CAS-ual Fridays April Release Day 1

Hello there!  I'm SO very excited to to be sharing cards all week for the CAS-ual Friday April release!  There are 5 new stamp sets and 2 new Fri-days being released and I know you're going to love them!

Today's new stamp set is called PRETTY POSIES, and there are matching POSIES Fri-Dies.  I love these doodle style flowers and the sweet sentiments in the set!

I started this card by making the background (that was stamped with an awesome new stamp set that will be shown on Friday).  After stamping the background with Versamark ink on white card stock and embossing in white, I did some ink blending using 3 PTI inks, Tropical Teal, Hawaiian Shores, and Aqua Mist.  To make my flowers and leaves I stamped them on white card stock using Versamark ink and embossed them in white and again colored them with PTI inks and my ink blending tool (Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise for the flowers and Tropical Teal for the leaves).  I die cut them with the coordinating Fri-dies and arranged them on the tags which were cut from Tag Buddies Fri-Dies.  The sentiment is from PRETTY POSIES, I stamped it on black card stock and embossed it in white.  I happened to have the black ribbon with the little white flowers on it in my stash and I thought it was perfect for my card. 

Be sure to visit the CAS-ual Fridays blog and leave a comment, there will be a $15.00 prize awarded each day of the release to one random commenter!  Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see another fabulous new stamp set!
