I Did It!

I finally made a CAS card! And you know what? I love it! It used to be scary to me, as I felt this need to have the space filled. It was very freeing and I really enjoyed the simplicity of it.

I actually sent this card out to my blog buddies (who are on the RAK list) and pen pals who had birthdays recently. :) I hope they liked it!

Stamps: TAC Bella Fleur, sentiment Stamping Bella
Paper: PTI white, Pixie Pink
Ink: Nick Bantock Lamp Black (Ranger), Copics, Versafine Black
Accessories: Ribbon from Stamping Bella, Stickles

Thanks for visiting!

Very cute. Maybe I will have to get over my fear of CAS.... but then what would I do with all my "stuff"??

Gina said...

You did a great job! I felt the same way when I first started making cards in this style, but I am starting to like that open space more and more.

Beautiful CAS card! I love the scalloped square and the tie-in with the ribbon and the green in the flowers. Lovely - and way to go with the CAS!

So cute! I don't know what CAS is-I'm assuming cute and simple or something? Anyway it's definitely cute. :)

Not sure what CAS is but I'm guessing clean and simple? Love it whatever CAS stands for. I tend to go the other way but need to make more cards that are quick and cute without a lot of stuff on them.

Oh my goodness... it's gorgeous!!! I love it! I am at the same place... I feel I have to fill all the space but I love when others do a CAS card like this!!! The colors are pretty and the image really takes center stage!

CAS cards scare me too! But the more I do them, the more I like it. Like you said, it's freeing!!! I love the clean of the white with the pop of bright pink and green!
