Anything goes with option CAS

I am back again! LoL This time as a guest designer for Papertake Weekly. Another favourite challenge of mine that I have the honor to design for at the moment. This weeks theme is really simple and fits you all I think. It's the first challenge of the month and that means "Anything goes" with an option if you like to and this time it's to make a Clean and Simple card.

I did or at least tried to do one last week for my CCM card and this is my second try with that style. It's actually quite fun to make these cards and I get to spend more time with my markers and don't have to deal with that much dp's. It's at least as hard to make a good looking CAS card as a card filled with details and stuff everywhere. The this that makes the difference is that you can't hide any misstakes with the CAS cards. LoL

Sorry about the photo once again. Winter in Sweden means no daylight and I don't have a very good camera. Maybe the weather allows me to retake the photo. 

The lovely image from Sassy Sherryl's is coloured with my Letraset markers and this was one of those digis I just needed to have. It's adorable and I love snowmen images of all kind. They are so sweet looking. :) I have even been spending time with my boys making some with a Panduro kit. All made up with pipe cleaners,  wink bullets and fabric. Tons of fun and frustrations as they doesn't look like the ones on the box as the youngest said. He thought he be some kind of master of this but it's really hard especially when you never have done it before. They will be living in our gingerbread house this Christmas.

I coloured the image up on some Neenah card and cut it into size. I made a few panels with a die from Memory Box that I love. It's called pearl lace. I tied a bow and took some ribbon around it all and then added a few pearls for interest. Maybe I should have added a sentiment too but I couldn't find a fitting one so without it is for now.

I do hope you will come and join us for this simple challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and maybe even give the CAS style a try. It's hard and really fun!

Love n hugs
Marie

I adore this card. this is the type of card that makes a fantastic Christmas card since it can be flat and mailed so easily. I am so bad at making mine too bulky. I love these snowmen, which are my favorite image of all times. Your colors are so bright and cheerful..so perfect with the pristine white. I am going to save this on my desktop so I remember to simplify my cards to look more like this. Good luck in your challenges and I hope you win!! Hugs, Gail
