OWH VCMP CHALLENGE #7 CAS CLEAN AND SIMPLE

WooHoo! We are getting near the end of the VCMP challenge and I got caught up today!

Hi all my crafty friends! I hope you are having a most beautiful weekend and hanging out with family or friends….or BOTH!  I decided to forgo the walks today since it is very cold and the wind is so blustery.  I just stayed in and made cards!

This one is for the Operation Write Home’s* Stars and Stamps VCMP challenge #7 CAS: Clean and Simple. If you have been following me, you know I am struggling with CAS.  I end up putting too much stuff on the card; and I’m afraid I did it again with this one.

OWH VCMP7

I am really working hard to get half of my box to be Mother’s Day cards, so to help me do more, I used my printer and my picture software to create the sentiment. I then filled an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock with it.

OWH VCMP7_3

I paper pierced (or pricked) each corner using an Erica Fortgens metal stencil.

OWH VCMP7_4

The center is stamped using Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s pretty Cherry Blossoms Set   I cut and embossed the sentiment and sponged it with Pixi Dust ink from VersaMagic.

OWH VCMP7_2

The center is stamped on the right corner to match the front.

I’m not sure, but possibly the rhinestones and ribbon went over the top for CAS. What do you think?

In addition to the OWH challenge, this card is also for:

Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge: IC323 and I chose to use this photo as my inspiration.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my card.Please let me know if you think it meets the requirements for CAS or not.

hugs,
