CAS & KickOff


It's Friday!
It's Summer!
It's the long weekend - WoooHooo!
I'm keeping things Clean and Simple today 'cause there's a lot to get done and I'm raring to go!

For today's main feature I used the colours from Create with Connie and Mary (Basic Black, Real Red and Sahara Sand) and the sketch from   Just Add Ink....which creates a perfect Clean and Simple card.  It's always difficult for me to leave crisp clean card stock - but I backed away today.  The butterfly has some texture - I combined the Elegant Butterfly punch with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die.


Now on to even more texture....this is the card that my guests will be creating at my Holiday Catalogue Kickoff today.  It contains absolutely NOTHING from the Holiday catalogue - but I've got displays of lots of things that were created with the new toys.....

So - off I go - Hope your day is full of fun stuff to do.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
Joan

This is a beautiful card for our sketch challenge this week, Joan. I love the colours, the DSP you've used, and the way you have layered the butterflies. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
