Been Tango'd!!

Wet, windy cold and miserable here and am away later today until tomorrow night on a course so am hoping the winds ease down a bit for the drive.
I have looked at those who use bright card stock on Pinterest and their own blogs so effortlessly with envy and have kept saying to myself this is a way of using up that tons of coloured card you posses instead of just using it as matting for images and patterned papers. So yesterday I took the plunge and CASE'd a card I saw a couple of years ago, making it with one of the brightest colours I have.

Talk about 'you've been tango'd'!!

(Think I might do a purple one next - as I have a friend who simply loves purple and it means another sheet of card used up.)

The image and sentiment from SU Bloom With Hope set, stamped and white embossed, a small scrap of grossgrain ribbon in the same colour as the card and a couple of teeny pearls. Finito!

I resisted the temptation to put more blingy bits around the flower heads! Quite pleased with this CAS effort although still a long way to go to convince myself that some cards DO NOT NEED lots of embellies!!
