* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design .
* Uncluttered

* one main focal point

It's all about the design .

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

CAS199 Simple Evergreen Scene
I've been stalking all night for this thread and it suddenly pops up! Here's my simple offering which turns out to be somewhat similar to Mary's. Hope I didn't take too much artistic license with the sketch. Thanks, Denise.

I am not a CAS kinda girl (although I LOVE looking through the gallery and am very drawn to them visually). It's always a stretch for me when I set out to make a CAS card - my fingers itch to add more!

I was so into this tonight, I made two versions. I'm not sure which one I like better. Oops - I just read HamiltonGal's post and realized it was a sketch challenge. Sorry. I'll try again tomorrow night.

eliotstamps 12-03-2012 09:32 PM

This was the perfect sketch for me to get a few more holiday cards done. Thanks Denise! CAS199: Tree by eliotstamps - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

My Card
I want to put this one here. I hope it is good enough and along the right lines. Please let me know if I need to do something different. Never tried to post one before.

Not sure how to put the pix on here. Any tips on what to do. I don't have a blog. Thanks

OK so that didn't work. Maybe this will:

I'm late but happy to be creating again....

Love this fun sketch..going to make another for matching cards for the grandkids.

upnseams 12-06-2012 08:15 PM

U know Ladies your cards are gorgeous. It makes me ashamed to post anything. I wonderful if I will ever get good at this. Thanks for letting me impose on your.

yellowrose46 12-07-2012 04:30 AM

Tammy, just keep on making cards! Take a look at the first cards any one of us posted, and you will see how we progressed. Getting inspiration from everyone here really helps! Don't feel intimidated.
