This is not a CAS card, but I have used two different dies on it, 
the Magnolia Heart Swirl and the open leaf die by Marianne Dies.
 I used both images Robert gave me and colored them on aquarel paper with Distress Inks.
 I made my own background using:  Distress Inks, Glimmer Mist, 
Acrylic paints and several stamps and stencils.
 The sentiment was stamped and embossed with embossing powder.
 The flower was self made with fabric, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Glimmer Mist, pearl string and a bead in the middle. I distressed the flower with Distress Ink Peeled Paint!
