Stamp TV Alumni CAS BLOG HOP

Carolina has organized another great Blog Hop for us.  This time she challenged us to do a CAS card - clean and simple.  Here are the parameters she gave us.
  • Your design must be CAS - Clean And Simple: lots of white or open space with one main focal point
  • One image
  • One sentiment
  • One layer card - your card base plus only one more layer
  • Embellishments - you can use any number of embellishments you want, but they all must be the same color
If you came here from Jen Charboneau's blog, then you are right on track.  Didn't you just love the colors in her card!! She is so talented.  For the beginning of this blog hop go to Stamp TV and start there.
So here's my card.
I used Tami Mayberry's Faithful Florals.  Every sentiment in this set will inspire and encourage you.  The paper is GKD's Ivory and October Afternoon dp.  I embossed the stamping and added tiny pearls to the centers of the flowers.

Doing a CAS was a real challenge for me but enjoyed the challenge and am planning to do some more.  Now you can go to Karen Knegten's blog - I always enjoy her cards and get inspired from her talent. After you have visited the other designers, don't forget to leave a comment at the Stamp TV blog.

Thanks for stopping and have a HAPPY stamping day!
