Default CAS169: It's time to be CHIC! (5/7/12)

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



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




~~~CAS WEEKLY CHALLENGE~~~




May 7

CAS Challenge: Inspired by a word or phrase - CHIC





KEYWORD: CAS169

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!

Fun challenge, Jen. I did a little twist on the word "chic"....and also combined your challenge with the TLC for today.

When I started out I thought this card was chic---at least this is what came to mind. But when I finished it, it looked more elegant than chic. And of course that made me wonder what exactly is the difference between Elegant and Chic.

Here's mine:Chic and Elegant by Miss Minx - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Thanks for the challenge
