It's An Early Birthday CAS Celebration!

Today i {heart} papers is sponsoring the CAS-ual Friday blog 
and you are in for a heart full of treats!
The challenge this week is to include a heart, in honor of i {heart} papers 4th birthday coming up!
My card uses a sweet sentiment from one of the Flourishes sets available at IHP: Strawberries. I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut out several hearts using a Spellbinders die. I added some of my current-favorite Everyday Eclectic 6x6 paper (Echo Park) to the inside so the pretty doily design would show up when the card is closed. A little silver bling and my card is ready for the mail!

Play along over on the CAS-Friday blog and link up! 
IHP will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to the winner! How cool is that?!

And take a look at this awesome coupon good for the next week! Don't miss out on this special birthday celebration!

And for a little fun, THIS CARD won last week's Cute Card Thursday challenge
