CAS-ual Friday #50

Hello everybody, 

What a beautiful weekend? Weather is awesome. Cloudy but chilly. A great day to get out and about. That is what I am going to do today and followed by making some changes on my blog.

Well, yesterday's shopping did not go so well. My town strandbag sold out on that particular handbag and the salesperson called other stores to find if there are any but no luck so far. The next restock is in July!!! Oh well, it is not a disaster :) I still have an unused 40% off voucher. Sad to let it lapse:( But I think I saved that 60% for next craft shopping :)

Anyway, here is a card I made for CAS-ual Friday challenge. I tell you, I cannot wait to start designing for them. Just one more week to go :)
 Here is this week's challenge

And here is my take on the challenge

Cardstock: Orange colour card and envelopes from local store.
Stamp sets: Simply Sunflower, Modern Basics and Pretty Peonies from PTI
Inks: Papaya and Grass from Amuse Inks and Cup'o Joe from Hero Arts aand Archival Jet Black Ink
Accesories: Simply Sunflower dies from PTI and sanding block.
This card too has a white core and when you sand the edges, you can see it and give a beautiful subtle border. Love it. I have used CAS-ual Friday sketch from last week to make this card.
Thanks for visiting! 
See you soon with a toot and a card :)
Until then... Ta!

I'm not a particular fan of orange (although my son was for a few years in his teens) but you make it look stunning!! Gorgeous card!

I love the way you've used an orange panel on top of the orange card base. I'm going to use that idea in the future!! I still haven't used my Sunflower set ... must get it inky!! Thanks for the inspiration.
