 My card yesterday was pretty layered and gussied up, so I decided to channel my CAS side for the card today.  I think it turned out really cute, and I hope you think so too!  I have created it for some challenges, which will be linked at the bottom of the post.  Here is what I created:
"Congratulations to the Happy Couple" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft, vintage cream)
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Two: Breeze & Blush 6x6 paper pads)
Stamps/Dies: WPlus9 (Heartfelt Mix, Heartfelt Mix dies, Love Birds dies)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: cranberry), Close to My Heart (Pigment: vanilla cream) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Twine: May Arts
Button: craft supply
Jewels: Kaiser Craft
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from kraft cardstock, then round the bottom corners.  Stamp the bird's wire and sentiment to the front in black ink.  Stamp the clouds in vanilla cream ink to the front.  Diecut the birds from patterned paper, and adhere to the right side of the stamp bird's wire.  Diecut the heart from vintage cream cardstock, then stamp the polka dotted heart to it.  Adhere the stamped heart above the birds using foam adhesive.  Tie a double bow from twine, thread a button around the middle and adhere.  Add three jewels to the sentiment to finish.

Be sure to check out what Dawn and all the other design team members have created for "Heartfelt Mix" & dies.  I know that it will be full of eye candy!! 
Be sure to join us again tomorrow night when we introduce another new stamp set....which is an addition to a WPlus9 favorite! Have a great rest of your day! ♥♥♥

Until later,
