Treasured Times

When I saw the challenge over at CASology I knew I just had to make a card using this image - I just hope it's CAS enough for the challenge.


I embossed a piece of Kraft card stock with a Crafter's Companion embossing folder and cut a window with a spellbinders die.  The Ooh La La Creations image has been placed behind the window and the LOTV sentiment in front of the window.  My only embellishment is some black string from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CASology Challenge Week 55 - CAMP
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 280 - Anything Goes
Dare to be Sassy Thursday Challenge 188 - Vacation or Travel
