This week I have the luxury of a few days 'me' time.  Mum has been visiting for the past ten days or so and it has been lovely to see her.  However now I have a few days to get younger son ready for his return to uni.  His day does not start at the same time as mine (by a long way!) and I have time to myself - bliss  :).
The theme at Addicted to CAS this week is Luxury and I have based my card around it.  I had the luxury of treating myself to a new stamp and die set and the sentiment and the bling also seem to fit the theme.

I'd like to give a shout-out to Dies to Die For, where I bought them from:  it's the first time I've bought from there and it was lovely to open a beautifully packaged parcel of goodies, with a few extra die-cuts from other sets added, a handmade tag, a handwritten note on the order form and a credit note for shipping too (as the order cost less than expected to send).  Oh, it arrived in under 48 hours too.  Not affiliation, but a very happy customer!

Embossing uses WOW Totally Teal, ink is DI Broken China for the sentiment, I've added diecut sequins, stamped and embossed sequins and real ones too.  Hope your day sparkles :).

I'm also entering my card for:
Simon Says - anything goes
Catch the Bug - bling, teal, diecut
Sweet Stampin' - embossing
Fairytale Challenge - clean & simple
Crafting for all Seasons - monochromatic
