This was made with this stamp I purchased at the stamp show a couple weeks ago. I colored the tassel with my gold Wink of Stella pen, the books with my red and fussy cut the image. A white panel was adhered to a gold piece of DCWV glitter CS and then added to a black card base. I then added the cap and books with foam. The sentiment is from SSS Inside & Out Sayings and was inked in gold Delicata ink.
Hopefully, this is CAS enough for this challenge. I usually don't add this many layers to a CAS card, but I thought this one needed the extra gold mat. If not, I totally understand.
Have a wonderful Friday! Enjoy!
