Default CAS232 Inspired by a Song (8/5/13)

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

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~~~

August 5
CAS232
Inspired by a Song
"Butterfly" by Little Mix

Have some fun with this one, take a listen!
Little Mix - Wings - YouTube

Here are some of the lyrics:
Mama told me not to waste my life
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And if they give you shh...
Then they can walk on by

[Jesy]
My feet, feet can't touch the ground
And I can't hear a sound
But you just keep on running up your mouth, yeah
[Jade]
Walk, walk on over there
'Cause I'm too fly to care, oh yeah
[All]
Your words don't mean a thing
I'm not listening
Keep talking, all I know is

(Chorus)
Mama told me not to waste my life
She said spread your wings my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you
'Cause wings are made to fly
And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly



KEYWORD: CAS232
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Let's leave some love for our excited and dedicated SUMMER Design Team!

So compared to all the others in the gallery, mine doesn't look overly great, but I had fun with it, and any suggestions for improvement are more than welcome!

Default Oops!

I'm really laughing tonight. I was looking on the challenge gallery and thought, wow, there's a lot of butterflies on the cards. Then I noticed no one was listing a song -

I opened the challenge early this morning and didn't read any further than "Inspired by a Song." I closed the thread and started creating a card based on one of my favorite songs *hahahahaha* Can I blame this on being tired after a week of challenges? I do have a butterfly on my card so maybe you'll let me stay ~

The song, With a Song In My Heart is by Susan Hayward not Rita. It's time for me to go to bed for at least a couple of days

Well I finally had time to make a card for the CAS challenge and then when I tried to download my image was too big. So I downloaded an image converter and I can't get it to work. I am so frustrated- trying to do this all on my laptop because I'm having issues with the desktop. And I have to be up very early in the morning again so I guess I may not get this done tonight. Thought I would upload my pic really quick and then make another card tonight. But I have been messing with the picture for over an hour now. I give up for the night. Maybe it will all look better tomorrow night!
OK I feel better now that I have vented my frustrations!
I'll try again tomorrow.

This challenge actually reminded me of two cards I just completed for DTGD challenge, which was a total blatant casing of one of PTI's wonderful DT members.
