CAS Challenge #3 - It's A Sketch!
Welcome to our 3rd CAS challenge! This week we are using a sketch that was inspired by this card I made last fall. You'll find a printable sketch attached to this post (hopefully... if I do it right )
The stars do not have to be that shape. Anything can go there: ribbon, a punched sentiment, other punched shapes etc. The blue section: you'll see a line. That can be another layer or maybe a ribbon or you can ignore the line altogether. You decide.
What is CAS?
The idea of CAS is to keep it Clean and Simple.
Definition: A clean and simple card has limited layers and sometimes just a card base. It leaves a lot of "open space". It uses little or no embellishments. Any techniques should be the old standard everyday kind like sponging, distressing and piercing. Limit the number of tools you use. Any colored images should be small and quick. Don't go overboard on tons of punches and embossing. CAS cards should be easy and quick.
Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Wonderful CAS sketch today! Thanks Jen
I am having computer problems, so I will play when I get home from work and upload when my regular computer is fixed. I can't figure out how to upload on my laptop, it doesn't recognize my camera. (Technically challenged, lol!)
Hi. Can you link us directly to the picture rather than your entire gallery please? The way it all pops up on my end when I try to open it are windows all over the place and it's hard to tell what's what. Does that make sense? I hope so. Thank you so much. What I was able to see though was beautiful.
