Default 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.

CAS Thank You

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.

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!

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!
