September Fall Frenzy VSD Challenge #1
 
Hello and welcome to our FIRST Fall Frenzy Virtual Stamp Day challenge!! I am going to take it easy on you as it is early and we are just beginning a fun day of challenges.

The first challenge is...

A Clean & Simple (CAS) Thank You card!!!

Here's my sample using Sweet 'n Sassy's Leaf Silhouettes.

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/70360263@N03/7978175297/" title="CAS Thank You by atsamom, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8459/7978175297_b4f8eecc47_m.jpg" width="240" height="240" alt="CAS Thank You"></a>

Card details are here.

Remember, in general, CAS cards can be defined as:
1. Lots of open space (uncluttered)
2. Limited layers and embellishments
3. Quick and easy to recreate

See the whole gallery HERE

Ready to play along? Here are some important details:

- Use the keyword SNSSFFVSD1 when uploading to the gallery
- You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy image to play (but if you do, add one of our keywords, too!)
- You'll have until Monday, September 17 ET to play along in any of our Fall Frenzy VSD challenges. 3 winners from the challenge players (all of the challenges lumped into one, so you get more chances for each challenge you enter) will win a $15 credit to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
- You are welcome to combine challenges, but you are only eligible to win one prize.

Adorable sample and fun challenge. I can always use an extra Thank You card! Hope to join the fun after work tonight. :(

CAS challenges are a challenge for me. Can't wait to try it though.

Kim, your card is awesome. Love the hint of color from the mats and the paper pieced leaf.

Bridget, I love how you used the dry embossing. That is an awesome idea to add something extra to a CAS without adding clutter. And the fun leaf border with the sentiment floating along with the leaves is just too cool!

Lovely CAS design Kim. Pretty leaf image... the twine looks great.

This seems like fun! It's been a long, long time since I've used any of the Sweet N Sassy stamps I have stockpiled. Hopefully I can play along. Love the samples so far for this one.

CAS is usually hard for me, but I have to say I love how this turned out. And although it's CAS, it took me a while to come up with the idea. LOL! Thanks for the great challenge!
