CASology Challenge

There is a new challenge in the blogosphere. It is CASology! Each week you "Take the cue word and run with it! Interpret it however you'd like! Just be sure and keep things clean and simple!!!" After having my heavily embellished card returned because it was too thick...I thought I'd give this CAS challenge a try. Oh my no embellishments!!! I'll probably have withdrawal without those extras. Here's my attempt at CAS.



The 'CUE' word for the week is "HAPPY". The sentiment is a die cut from Sizzix, the ink pen and splotches are from PTI. I absolutely had to add a tiny touch of bling in the ink splotches as the withdrawal was becoming unbearable! I resisted adding it to my letters. :-)



This is the 'CUE CARD' for the week. There's still time to play...if you can tolerate the embellishment withdrawal!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

You are serious about CAS! I'm like you...I really like all the things you can add to a card, but there is also something striking about a simple card. This one is a knockout! Love the way you layered the text and gave the pen a red shadow.
