not quite sure. . . .

if this card meets the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays or not:



Sure hope it will fit the bill:




I think the three elements (die cut, gems and sentiment) are in the middle third of the card.  So, I'm going with it!
The die is from Memory Box.  The sentiment is Penny Black.  I smooshed distress inks on my craft sheet to make the background which shows through the die cut.  Then I spritzed it with Ranger's heirloom gold spray and it is SO pretty IRL.

Have a wonderful weekend!
