CAS rules!!

The Clean and Simple weekly challenge over at Splitcoast is one of my favourites - just love the CAS style.

I've had a go at the past three challenges but never got round to posting them...I'll be rectifying that over the next few days if that's ok ;) Here's the first for the 'Show Us Your Artwork' challenge - to make a card inspired by a picture on www.art.com.

If you know me you'll know how much I love anything aqua or turquoise so no wonder this one jumped out at me! Here's my card based on it:

Too simple for ya lol?!

Recipe: Stamps: One of a Kind/Wonderful Words
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black

Card - Whisper White/Tempting Turquoise
Other - corner rounder punch/black brads
/Copic sketch markers

And here's one of Lauren Meader's super-cute baskets I've just posted (with details) on A Passion for Papertrey:

Thanks for visiting me today!!

Hello Kate,

I couldn´t say, which one is my favourite piece. The card ist so beautiful and I love the clean and simple style very much. And the basket with its soft green and strong red is so elegant. Both are just perfect.

Hugs, Tina

Loving that basket too, great job Kate.

Have a good day.

Hi Kate

Your blog never fails to cheer me up - it's a miserable old day today and I am suffering with lack of sunshine.... really down in the dumps, I trot on over to your blog and it puts a smile on my face - it really is the best medicine, love them both and the colours

Hi Kate,

All your cards and projects are just "gorjus" but I love the simplicity and freshness of the Turquoise and White one. Off to case it now!
