CAS-ual Friday challenge - take 2

I'm entering this card into CAS-usal Friday's dies/punches challenge, but not too sure if you can really count it as CAS... what do you think?

Encouragement

There aren't many embellishments, but there's not a lot of negative space either!  I had my idea for this card in the middle of the night so as soon as I could, I got into my craft room to create it this morning.  I used some Hero Arts watercolour paper and Distress inks to make my background rainbow.  The adorable sentiment is from Inkadinkado ~ a set called "Friendly Advise".  I stamped it in black ink and clear embossed.  I finished with a rolled rose (my die cut for the challenge)

As it is an encouragement card, I have added this to the Paper Crafts 2012 Gallery Idol open auditions and Simon Says Stamp ~ CAS cards.

Are you enjoying your weekend.  After a busy day cleaning, including the insides of the windows, I did get some time to craft.  Made my card for Hero Arts Spring Exchange and I also got to look at days 1-4 of A Cut Above on-line class.  You can purchase just the Part 1 or just Part 2 or the combined package.  Part 1 suited me so got it... go here to purchase.  Well worth it!  As I don't have an electronic cutter, it was great to just be able to purchase the part that related to manual machines.  Thanks On-line classes for doing this.  Now off to have some lunch before finishing the course and trying out some of the ideas.

I love this card and it looks CAS to me! Especially like that sentiment.

I haven't had any time this week to make cards; hope I can do some today and tomorrow for these same challenges.
