Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!


***********************************************



What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

It's all about the design.
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design.
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design.

Clean & Simple




*********************************************

I went with the colors rather than the subject matter from the magazine cover. These colors to me are the essense of spring. Thanks, Jen, for a fun challenge.

The pastel colours made me feel all springlike so I chose to stamp spring flowers. The colours did come out darker on my card than I had anticipated.

My card is here: CAS Thank You by Patrick's mum - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I hope you like it.
