Keep It Simple

Do you like CAS cards or maybe they are a challenge for you and you want to give them a try?  Well either way you will want to join us this week at Crafty Creations as our theme for the next two weeks is:


Keep It Simple


and if you join us you could be in the running to win a prize!  Click here to check out the challenge.


I love the CAS sketches that Clean and Simple provide and I have used them many times before and again today to create my card.


I saw the sketch but was not sure what stamp set(s) I would use.  I recently placed an order from the current Seasonal Catalogue and also got some freebies because of Sale-a-Bration and my order arrived in time to create my card for this challenge.


I have used the sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set from the Seasonal Catalogue.  The banners have been stamped using the Banner Blast set and punched our using the Banner punch which both part of Sale-a-Bration.


The little hearts have been punched out using the Owl Builder punch and I have used the colours, Perfect Plum, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.  The base card is Crumb Cake and the main layer is Very Vanilla.


Here is my card:




Quick and simple, plus I just love the colours together!  A card perfect for Valentines but very non-traditional colours.


Here is the sketch:
