Happy Birthday

A big congrats to Loll, Bonnie and the design team at
CAS Mix Up....celebrating their 4th Birthday...
hope you can join in and play along  ---  there are prizes too

Oh my goodness - who would've thought that I could use acrylic paint backgrounds that I created yearrrsss ago and for some reason still have in my stash...
.... so this month just what I needed a challenge to use acrylic paint... at 

I selected this red/pink panel - probably used scrunched  paper pounced in inks on an old manilla folder... and this die cut oval garden piece to overlay, leaving a thin edge to frame it.  Added some spots of white metallic acrylic paint and a stamped and embossed sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by my blog   ----   have a Happy Day
