CAS Mix Up October Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Bonnie.
Check out the Top Picks from September's Inchies challenge HERE.

Before we start the challenge, we'd like to introduce new members of our Design Team.
We have even more inspiration to offer you!

Jenny (My Paper Epiphany)
Jenny is already a member of our CAS family,
designing for the CAS Watercolour Challenge.

Linda (Life in the Craft Lane)
Linda joined the CAS family the first of the year as a
designer for CAS Stencil Challenge

Rounding out our team is
Ros (Mikey's Mom)
Ros is new to our CAS family and we are so happy
 to have her joining us.

A warm welcome to all three.

Now to our challenge
This month's challenge is foiling and there are many ways to incorporate this onto your cards.
A laminator can be used with gel medium and foils.
Foils can also be attached, without a laminator using double sided tape, 
special glue or burnished onto alcohol inks.
There are video links below to inspire you further.
I am so looking forward to your wonderful creations in the gallery.
Have fun .....

Please follow challenge rules:
1.     Must be a card with a CAS (clean and simple) design (including open space)
2.     Must include at least three components listed on challenge badge
3.     Include link to challenge in your entry post
