CAS...I think!! CAS(E) #18

Guess what I did *finally*!  I read the definition of CAS, before creating my card for CAS(E) #18, and realized how non-CAS some of my 'attempted' CAS cards are.  Okay,that's a nonsensical sentence, but if you've seen some of my cards, you'll be nodding your head - vigourously - in agreement.  So, newly enlightened and striving very hard uphold the key aspects of what constitutes 'clean and simple,' I'm hoping my card today is a step in the right direction!   Oddly, the "thinking" about this card took longer than the making...

Simple ingredients for this simple card (now I'm concerned it's too basic!!): 
  • Authentique "Fresh" paper (no idea when I even bought this up-until-yesterday poor neglected paper pad.  A new stash discovery, sort of 'vintage-y')
  • a doily die, ticket die and stamp, 
  • a fussy-cut butterfly and
  • a wee red pearl. 
Combine.  Card made.

Here's CAS(E) #18:

Here's my card :
(apologies for the colour, as it's actually more vibrant than the photo shows - the cardstock is 'solar white'...truly!!):

Thanks for stopping by!  A 'ticket' for you, to redeem for a day filled with all things warm and rosy...

What a gorgeous card Carol! That doily is breath-taking, and those tickets are placed oh-so-perfectly! And don't forget, the definition of CAS is subjective - you can make it whatever you want! All of your cards are CAS and beautiful!
