For Casual Fridays

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card I made last night - turned out quite pretty in real life.
The printed paper is a tissue napkin from a Chinese restaurant we went to in Rome three years ago!!!
I have used matt gold paper for the nesties (Spell binder) and flowers. They have been embossed and sponged with tea dye distressed ink. The flowers have been punched using dies and punches. Some of the flowers have been sponged as well. 
The sentiment is a Just Rite cling stamp from Spell binders - I just used the inner part of the stamp.

I am going to submit this for - the theme being sentiment as the focal point.

Rather late for the challenge and not sure whether the card is CAS enough!!!

Hope you like my creation... would love to hear what you think.

Lots of love,
