05.03.14:


Good morning all!  I don't know about you, but we desperately need some sun around here.  It's been gloomy, rainy, snowy and cold.  Everyone is a Mr. Cranky Pants.  Including me :)

I thought I would cheer myself up with a bright and happy card, feathers and all!  I also tried using thread in a messy way as I see it make an appearance here and there in the crafting world.

I do have a question (which I suppose I should have had on here earlier) - would you consider this CAS??  I would, but maybe I am pushing it with the stitching??

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Stampendous! sentiment
Inks: Versafine Onyx Black
Design Papers: MME Happy Day
Cardstock: Recollections
Bits/Bobs: vellum paper, orange thread
Tools: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Feathers, EK Success Corner punch


I created this card for the following challenges:
Fusion Card Challenge

CAS-ual Fridays


Have a super fantastic weekend - cheers!!

Wow, I adore this, Deanne! That chevron background with the matching chevron feather is super cool!!

I don't think it is CAS, but I think it is fabulous! I've copied below the best definition I've seen of CAS. It's from "The Card Concept" challenge blog, where they also have lots of other styles defined.

1. Clean and Simple (CAS)

Definition:
One main image
Lots of open space (uncluttered)
Limited layers & embellishments
Quick & easy to recreate

I hope that helps! Hugs, Darnell

What a happy feather you have there! Would love to see the bird it came from, hahaha : ) Great fusion of not only the Fusion Challenge, but also the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. Thanks for joining both of them!

LOVE the clean style & layers! FABULOUS feathers & stitching - LOVE the angled panel too!
Probably more "Clean & Layered" than "Clean & Simple" :)
