CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #94

Happy Friday, my friends! =) It's time for a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays! Here is this week's challenge.


The challenge is to use chipboards on your clean and simple cards/projects.


Since I rarely use/buy chipboards and I don't have the color that I wanted on hand, making my own was the way to go. I first die cut the letters from coasters and gold inked cardstock. I then glue them together to get my faux gold chipboard letters. =)


The brush stroke is from Breathe set by CAS-ual Fridays. I love the imperfect, crayon-like texture! =)


This week's sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! Link up your clean and simple projects using chipboards for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate! For all the details, please visit CAS-ual Fridays! Hope you can join us this week!

That's it for now. Have a happy day, my friends! =)
