Challenge on "Our Creative Corner"

THIS WEEK the host for "Our Creative Corner is Lori Rider and her challenge is to create a card or project using a tree image and a clean and simple (CAS) style. I'm so glad the they described what "CAS" meant - ta da! What qualifies as CAS? Well, that's mostly up to you - generally it will be a quicker/less cluttered/clean line style. If you're still not sure, then just aim for something simpler than you might usually make!

So my CAS card is really easy - I love distressing and I love how it turned out. I love my Nestabilities 8 die-cuts too. Don't you just love Rangers Distress Inks? Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint were used on the tree panel. Hero Arts Cling Dots and Friends sentiment complete the stamping on this card. Some gems, a little ribbon... voila.
