Addicted to CAS Challenge #174 - Tree

Hi there, blog friends! Today starts a new challenge at Addicted to CAS ~ Ceal is our Hostess, and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Tree’.

I think this card is self-explanatory...I used MFT Gold Sparkle cardstock for the scallop oval frame ~

We would love to see how the code word ‘Tree’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team and play along with us, come on over and check out the ATCAS Blog ~

Perfectly CAS!

Hi there, blog friends! I hope all of my U.S. friends had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends! 
There's a new card challenge in blogland, and it's right up my alley ~Perfectly CAS!

I love how they emphasize using one third or less for their criteria and hope I was able to manage it with my design ~

I masked the lower-left corner and blended a few Altenew inks to fade into white, then stamped this sweet little girl, tree, and sentiment. I also added sparkle with my falling snow stencil using glass bead glitter gel. Since this is a 5 x 5.5" card, I'll be creating a custom envelope...

If you love a truly CAS card, check out the Perfectly CAS challenge...Their DT is amazing and I'm looking forward to playing along in the future ~
