Ho Ho Ho...STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge (Optional Colour Twist: Purple)


November already...and time for STAMPlorations November CAS Card Challenge #11

This month, I'm continuing with my Guest Designer role with the STAMPlorations gals and oh, what fun this is! I brought along a little purple and aqua Zigs-coloured 'gift' to show my appreciation. I played with the sketchy present image (the loopy bow...oh my!) and sentiment from the Warm Hands, Warm Hearts stamps and dies (I LOVE x LOVE this set), paired with the squiggly 'ribbons' from  Mixed Media Elements.  

Design inspired by *I missed it*  CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #196

Hopefully, my card has given you ideas for CAS designs, using the optional twist of purple. For way more fabulous inspiration, please head over to the STAMPlorations blog, to see what the rest of the team, along with the other two new guest designers, have created. You'll be delighted!  After that, create something CAS-ilicous of your own and...

Join us in the gallery!
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Here are the absolutely friendly, simple "rules":

You can link up to 3 CAS cards.
You can enter a CAS card with or without the optional color twist.
Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
Badges for winner and top picks are voted by the design team
1 winner drawn from those who use the color twist wins a $10 gift certificate
See? All the more reasons to play along!!!
