CAS card?!

   Well hey there!  I have a card to share today that I was determined to make as a CAS card!  I recently learned (thanks Melina!) that CAS means clean and simple!  Those have become some of my very favorite kinds of cards.  No frills...just plain ole sentiment and basic picture!  They are, however, surprisingly difficult (for me anyhow!) to create!  Sounds like it would be super easy, but the tiny little voice in my ear (do you have one of those?!) is always whispering to me to add some bling or glitter or a button and another ribbon! LOL   I struggled to try to  keep this one really, really simple, but things just kept piling on!  Does it still count as a CAS when there are 4 1/2 layers and a ribbon!  LOL  You decide:

It is still simple!  Clean lines and no extra stamping!

Just a few layers and some cutting out of the image oh and a tiny, little ribbon and knot!

Layered flowers add pop!  I liiiiike pop!

Ok, so maybe it isn't exactly a CAS card! LOL  It does feel  simple and pretty to me though and that was what I was going for!  I did manage to resist the urge to put some of those gorgeous silver glitter butterflies on it and that wasn't easy!  Hmmmm....maybe my next CAS card will actually be CAS... but probably not! LOL

Have a great Monday!  I will see you soonest!

It looks CAS although it has many layers is still simple. Love that stamp and it looks so elegant as well. Good Job!!!
