You'd think this was easy right? Hardest card I ever created. I am the world's worst stamper - the proof is in the trash. I should have given this a 5 on the degree of difficulty - that's how hard it was for me, but it obviously looks super simple, and would be for most. I am nothing if not persistent!

Lol - I love your honesty, mine too took several attempts! But Priscilla it was all worth it, this card is fabulous. Your colour splashes are perfect in every way - the rest were just paper, but this one is a masterpiece!

Priscilla, you are right....your card looks "bright and breezy", but I can understand your frustration...CAS, IMO, is one of the hardest styles...yet it looks like the easiest. Your card is FABULOUS and I applaud you for your perseverance.

Priscilla, I completely understand. I think anyone who has ever tried to create a CAS will agree - it takes patience, practice, and persistence! See, you're already there! Thank you for your sharing and not throwing it in the trash (smiling).

Priscilla, I take my hat off to you for persisting with something that is outside your comfort zone, and the result is absolutely lovely! The watercolour look is so pretty as a bg for the delicate meadow image. So glad you went for it!

Sometimes I labor over a card that might take someone else a moment.....so I never guess how hard it is to create anything. I must say, the results were worth whatever effort you had to put into this card. it's a thing of beauty!!
