ATSM #74 - Clean and Simple

Hi there everyone! Hope you are enjoying your week so far.

A brand new challenge has just started over at ATSM and this week we are looking for your Clean and Simple (CAS) projects.

We also have a wonderful sponsor for you and you have to be in it to win it!



Our Top Addict will have the choice of 5 images from their store!


Here are my DT cards -


My 1st one has used a sponsor image called 'Candy Canes'. 




I have printed the candy canes onto blender paper and then coloured with my Spectrum's. Then they were cut out and popped up with dimensionals. I'm not sure if you can see, but I have paper pierced around the edge of the white panel. The sentiment is from my Petite Pairs set (SU).


I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges -





52 CC Throwdown - Pick a previous theme



CASology




Spectrum Noir - Food (yummy candy canes!!)




Here is my 2nd card




Here I have used the Natural Composition Paper from SU which was given to me by the ever so generous Phillipa when I was down in Canberra.  It's so lovely with the embossing already on the paper. I've just added some layers of lace and ribbon and finished off with a hemp twine bow and Antique brad. I made this card for one of my lovely ladies who attends my card classes. She loved it!


So there you go - two very different cards but kept very CAS.

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge.


I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges -


CASology


Make it Monday - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes with optional twist


Thank so much for looking xx
