ATSM #104 - CAS


Hi there blog friends ~ We are back with another fun challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps  and More Challenge Blog, and our theme is “Clean & Simple”! And, to get things started, I’ve created this card:



My inspiration for the design of this card was based on Gayatri Murali’s sketch Here. I wanted to use the Mama Elephant banner from the 'Bloomsies' stamp set, and paired it with those sweet little flowers and leaves from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the banner and sentiment with Delicata Golden Glitz to add a little shimmer to the card, and a few small gems to the centers of a few flowers...and that was it - Clean and simple with lots of white space!

I hope you will take a peek at the ATSM Challenge Blog ~ My teammates have created some amazing CAS cards, which I hope will inspire you to join in the fun!


And, don’t forget, we always have a wonderful sponsor, and for this challenge it’s Eureka Stamps, who is offering the winner of this challenge 3 digi stamps!





                                         
                                      




Since I used die cuts on my card, I would also like to enter it in Virginia's View Challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by ~
Barb

Oh do I ever LOVE this card and I saw it first over at ATSM and was so happy when I saw it was one of your cards!!

Sorry that I have been so behind on cards and such. I've spent the last two full days working on a project for OWH and it was fun, but took me a lot of time, as it was to create some Silhouette Files, for Sandy to use in some of her online classes. I also liked the challenge and that I was able to create the files and HOPEFULLY help her and other who want to create their own color wheels for Copic Coloring. It's one use used in class and she had hand cut each one or used some dies and punches...and after thinking of ALL the work, I had wondered if I could create some files that would make it easier and I had success! Yippee!!

Hope you are having better weather than we are...it's been down-pouring all day, and rainy and very muggy, all this week. I hope today is the last day, and then we have a nice stretch of weather coming!! Yay!
