Shabby CAS

A really simple CAS card for the CAS challenge at Splitcoast this week.  The challenge is to make a CAS card that is Shabby Chic.  The Technique Challenge on Splitcoast is to "frame" an image or sentiment...anything really on your card.  I used one of the Label Nesties for that.  I am in love with this October Afternoon paper.  The stamp set coordinates with this paper and  is from OA as well.
I used the same set on my card the other day.  I just did some very basic, sloppy paper pleating and added a ribbon and REALLY old lace trim that I had in my stash.  The base of the card is embossed and then distressed .  That's it!   I really enjoy doing a CAS card now.  Makes life simple.  Have a great weekend.  See you back here tomorrow for a Sunday Sketch:)

Toodles!
