to share with you today!!!   I spotted this blog the very first day but have only NOW found the opportunity to share it with you!!  A local crafting friend, Angie Cortes has started a new challenge blog and it is called CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge.
The CAS (clean and simple) style of crafting is one I don't do often and actually find a bit difficult!  Crazy huh!!   I like all the layers, lace, embellishments ... well, you get the picture.  So, I have decided this is one challenge I really need to play!!  Not only to help support a friend but to also take me out of my comfort zone and "spread my wings" a bit!!

Not only will Angie be having sponsors for her challenges, but she is on the look out for their very first DT.   SO, if you love this style, why not put your application in and give it a whirl!!  You can find all the information HERE

Here is a card I came up with for their very first challenge "ANYTHING CAS".
I bought this QuicKutz FRAME embossing folder yesterday while visiting my friend June at The Stamp Pad in Zoar and thought it would work perfectly!  I simply ran a piece of pink cardstock through my cuttlebug with this embossing folder the swiped across the top with Color Box Velvet pigment ink.  The sentiment stamp is by Anita's and the ribbon came from Michael's.  Of course I couldn't just center it and be done ... NO ... I had to off set the main image and do a little faux stitching down the one side!  SEE ... I told you ... 

Well ... this is as CAS as I can do for today!  I must say it was fun ... but I just need to learn when to say NO MORE and be happy with it!!  I'll keep trying!  Pop on over and check out this new challenge blog and tell Angie I sent you!!   Have a wonderful weekend!!
