Dragonfly Thinking of You...STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge #19~Anything CAS Goes (optional twist: Orange)


So honoured to be joining an amazing group of designers - introduced below -  as part of the STAMPlorations 

CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge Team

On the first Thursday of each month, we will be sharing our clean and simple cards. Then, we will be back on the third Thursday of each month for more CAS inspiration. It's anything CAS card goes for this challenge with the optional color twist!

Guest Designers (October to December 2017):

My card was inspired by the beautiful card designed by incredibly talented Loll, at Stamping with Loll.  I used her tissue paper watercolouring technique (video here) to create the background which I then paired with the elements listed below. I'm so glad I found a piece of tissue paper in the house! 

Trendy Feathers 1 (retired) 
ATC Tag Builder (for aperture)

Please head over to the main blog to see the incredible cards created by my wonderful team. You'll be dazzled and, I know, inspired to play along!  The guidelines are simple; the rewards for joining us, wonderful:
  • Players can link up to 3 CAS cards.
  • Players can enter a CAS card with or without the optional color twist.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
  • Prizes: $10 GC for the winner; $5 GC to the top picks
  • If there are 50 or more entries: 1 random winner of product of choice (3x5 stamp set OR 2 standard size stencils OR 1 CUTplorations word/phrase die)
Easy and so inviting!  
Looking forward to seeing your CAS creations in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!
