CAS Mix Up April's Monthly Picks

It's been another month of amazing entries.  We are thrilled with the participation and with the gorgeous stenciled cards submitted by everyone.  Each entry is truly a work of art and we appreciate you taking the time to share with us at CAS Mix up!  Thank you.

Below is just a few of the outstanding entries from this month, along with our "Pick of the Month".  We hope you enjoyed playing along and that you'll come join us again for a new challenge in May.

Our Pick for April

We love the soft watercolour background Barb created, which highlights the texture and depth of the beautiful stenciled frond.  The heat embossed sentiment and dew drops add lots of sparkle and shine.  Gorgeous!

Congratulations, Barb!
