Fabulous Chandeliers

What a relief it is to finally ink up some new stamps!  I got these when my mom visited in early July and they have just sat patiently in their box waiting to be played with.

I rolled together a few challenges to come up with this:

Now that I think about it, this card isn't as 'clean and simple' as they come, is it?  I was really focusing on the colors and not the fact that it was supposed to be CAS.  Oh well.  It's sorta CAS, so I'll stick with it!

See you soon,

Stamps:  Chandeliers by Inkadinkado, sentiment by Anna Griffin
Ink:  Whisper White craft, Baja Breeze, Basic Black - all SU; Distress Inks in Frayed Burlap and Antique Linen
Paper:  Kraft, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Punches:  Modern Label
Other:  Big Shot, oval and scalloped oval Spellbinders Nesties, dimensionals, sponge, blue rhinestone stickers, Stampamajig
