CAS Mix up, Guest Designer

Good evening everyone.
This is a scheduled post 'cos I'm out having fun with like minded ladies at my craft class.
Love to get together for a bit of light hearted banter and an hour or so of crafty delight!
A fortnight ago I was in the same position and today sees me back with a reminder for you for the CAS Mix Up Challenge that I'm GDing on this month. Thanks for asking Bonnie, Loll and the rest of the girls.
 Anyway here is my card to remind you that you have just over a week to get your corrugated card projects linked up

This time I took the colours from this month's challenge at Altenew, using their gorgeous 'Remember This' set. I stamped a large bloom, a couple of buds and some leaf outlines and embossed with white EP. I then coloured them with my Zigs and fussy cut them out.
I took some cardboard from a packing box and ripped a corner off, also removing most of the top layer of paper to reveal the corrugations. Last time I left the corrugated card it's usual brown colour but this time I painted it with white acrylic and when dry added some platinum Inka Gold wax with my finger. On a die cut white card panel I glued the painted card in the bottom left corner, then grouped the fussy cut flowers and stuck them down. From a scrap of matching card I cut the always (STAMPlorqations) and also one from some funky foam, although I cut away the a so it would lie flat over the c. card.
Using my Misti, I positioned the always where I wanted it to be and placed the & Forever stamps (STAMPlorations). Removing the always, I stamped and embossed the words in silver before placing the always back and gluing it in place.
The finished panel was then attached to my base card.

My choice was Inka Gold Wax, Heat Embossing, Watercolour and die cut
