CAS-ual Fridays Challenge - Texting Skills

Did you ever wake up and feel like playing with mustaches?  Probably not otherwise you would be me and that can be a scary thing, trust me!  Anyhoo - today is the day for the very first CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!!
The challenge is -  incorporate text prominently into your newly created CAS project.  It is easy to feature text by stamping the background with one sentiment stamp and making one stand out by stamping in a contrasting color.
This fun stamp set is called "Foiled Again" and is by - you guessed it - A Muse|Studio!!  In fact - all the supplies used are from A Muse.  I'm celebrating spring by offering the first 3 customers in May that place a $50+ order in my online store a free catalog - WhOo HoO!
Here's proof that spring is here - Lookie at some pretty flowers from my backyard - I get so excited when the Peonies bloom - so big and showy and they smell wonderful!!  I used a pic from a few years back to make my blog header -
I like pink when it is in flower form -
Purple too - sigh - Now that it hasn't rained in three whole days there has been a lot of lawn mowing in the neighborhood and I LOVE the smell of newly cut grass!  Please note that close-ups of flowers help to disguise the fact that our lawn needs edging - LOTS of rain makes LOTS of grass/dandelions/weeds!  Help!!

Love this one, Michelle! The colors are fabulous -- I can't believe how many colors and patterns you worked into it while still keeping it CAS.

LOL! This is so cute! I've been a bit bewildered by the current mustache trend but this card almost makes me want to jump on the bandwagon. :)
