You Make Me Smile

Hi everyone! I hope you've had a great week.

It's time for another CAS-ual Fridays challenge. The theme for this week is stamping on patterned paper:

I used some of my CAS-ual Friday stamps to make a collage card:

Somehow I managed 7 layers on a CAS card. ha ha I started with a little Dewey mist and splattered it. I started by die cutting the pink chevron banner from the Atlantic collection. I stamped the sentiment from the Casual Elegance set on the banner, and then I stamped the leaves from the set four times on the Mint Julep paper to make a flower.

After the stamping was done, I die cut the small tag and used other elements from Chic Tags and BasicGrey. Here's a close-up of the layering:
