CAS Mix Up October Monthly Picks


October's foiling challenge was a new technique to many of us and we
found many ways to add foil to our cards.  Thanks to all of you who bravely
gave it a try and found awesome ways to add foil!

Our Top Pick for October
Tristan got an amazing amount of foil on her alcohol background. The gold foil
is so pretty with the green and a perfect background for this sweet leafy circle.
A perfectly CAS card!
