Live In The Moment..

Inspired by 
The CAS Mix Up Card Challenge 
I was lucky enough to receive an Outstanding Design 
shout out for my card...Thank you so very much

CAS(E) This Sketch for today's card
stamping, tissue paper and your choice..Mine is Die Cutting.
There are links on the blog about different techniques to try.
CAS(E) This Sketch  challenge totally caught my eye....
I have used several different colours of Lindy's sprays, for the tissue technique.
Some of them have mica in them and are really pretty and blingy !
I have enhanced the texture on the tissue with inca gold.
The die cut leaf has been heat embossed to add shine 
and the sentiment heat embossed in gold.

I loved doing, the new to me, tissue technique and combining it with the sprays...
Messy and fun x
