I decided on a CAS card this time around, and used an image and sentiment from the "Spring Mix" kit. I stamped with white ink on a kraft panel, which I popped up on a Sand card base.  I used my Scor-Buddy to add accents.  I also sponged a little white ink around the kraft panel, to make it stand out a bit.
