CSS CAS Blog Hop

My goodness - 2 blog hops for me in as many days! This has been fun if a bit of a "challenge"! I have to let you know that CAS cards are the most difficult for me to make - I always want to add just one or tow more things. But - here it is, a CAS (Clean and Simple) blog hop. The challenge was to create a card with these requirements:
  • One image
  • One sentiment
  • One layer card - card base plus only one more layer
  • Embellishments - as many as you want but all the same color


You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz blog and I am quite sure that she shared another incredible creation. If you want to start at the beginning just head on over to the home page of StampTV.

I used Tami's Faithful Florals for this card.  The card base is Pure Luxury In The Navy and the white embossed layer was sent to me by the wonderfully talented and generous Karen Knegten. I used Distress Inks - Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass for the flowers with a brush and then just Copic B37 to give it a little definition. I used a green marker for the stems. A little blue ribbon and that is it - CAS!


Now hop on over to visit Shannon Hawkins for what I am sure will be another amazing card. I sure am glad you stopped by and for leaving a comment! Have a great weekend!

Tracy Suzanne said...

OMG Miesje, your card is absolutely beautiful. So elegant, simplistic in a Coco Channel sort of way, so graceful, just lovely.

Everyone has made wonderful cards but there's only 2 that have blown me away so far and yours is one. As a matter of fact this is the only one I have commented on. I just had to tell you how much I loved it.

It makes me wish I could stamp and color.

Hugs and blessing...Tracy :)
