CAS Mix Up March Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Joanna!

Check out the Top Picks from February's Dimensional Die Cut challenge HERE.

Welcome to a new challenge!
We're giving the Faux Stained Glass technique a whirl.  This technique works great when stacking outline die-cuts or stamping on acetate, but if you come up with a new approach don't be shy.  
Can't wait to see your sumptuous creations. 

We're in celebration mode because it's our 3rd Birthday!!!

Thank you for joining us each month to share your wonderful creations.
You are the BEST!
