During the busiest week of the school year, the LAST thing that I should
be doing is making cards...but, I decided to make one anyway!! :) :)
(I couldn't resist my favorite colors!)
Here is my first real attempt at a CAS card after checking out a few people's CAS work
and asking around as to what does it really mean.
The other night I made a simple quick gift card holder and I thought... Is this CAS?
It wasn't really... It was just simple. LOL ;) ;)
So after some thought and checking out the blogs of the people who seem
to always use this style, this is what I came up with.
I LOVE the quirky font that is inside of the card!! :) ;) :) It makes me smile! I think most things in life should be written in fun and quirky font. I mean, why not?!? :) ;) :)
I used the color inspiration from Colour Q this week and 2 different stamps sets.
Here's the color palette:
and I'm entering my card into the CAS challenge over @ TSG.
The first stamp set is from a company that is new to me in the last 2 weeks called, The Alley Way Stamps. I learned about this company from Arielle's work on Colour Q and Retro Sketches.
I kept seeing fun and playful images on her cards and then one day a set of quirky birds that I just had to have! :) ;) ;)
The Alley Way Stamps has fun & whimsical stamps and if you haven't checked them out yet, here's the gateway to the cuteness.
I also used a set from Taylored Expressions that I have never used, but loved the references in the sentiments to vision like "Spectacular" and "clear to see" so I combined the 2 sets and there you go... a fun CAS card... At least I think it's CAS!!
Thanks for stopping by!
