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~~~

CAS259 - Sketch Challenge
We are using a card found on page 37 of the current Stampin' Up catalog.
I call it the stair-step thanks card Please see the attachments.



KEYWORD: CAS259
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Let's leave some love for our guest designers who have made some great samples for us this week!

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.

Fun idea! I pretty much failed at my first try, but I uploaded it anyway so you can compare CAS gone wrong with CAS done right

Heart CAS259 Most Beautiful Things

For today's stair-step sketch- I used a cute stamp from RS for my cherries, which I paper pieced, and added a sentiment I found today at the thrift store- added a dc heart and a buttons/bow combo. Here's Most Beautiful Things
