CAS (Clean and Simple)

Can you believe it?
MARCH 1st!!
(and another SNOW storm on the way ... Uuuugh!)

Anyways, since I can't go outside to plant flowers and make the yard pretty, I may as well do & share a little crafting!  And why not go OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE too!  When I saw the current challenge over at Addicted to Stamps & More was CAS, I knew I just had to share one of these cards.  I think they all came together quite good especially since I don't do a lot of SIMPLE cards ... if you follow my blog you know I like layers, flowers, embellishments ...

Now THIS is as CAS a card as you can get (at least in my mind!)

I was recently commissioned to make a variety of Thank You cards for a lady who requested they be in the color scheme of the company product she's selling for.  That color scheme is Lime Green, Black and White.  (This gal is quiet the supporter ... I NEVER see her without this Lime Green color on her SOMEWHERE!  LOL)

Here's a photo I took of just a few of the other cards ...
... yep there's some pretty CAS cards in this collection!

  1. Well, you may never do many CAS cards, but you nailed this one for sure! It's perfect! And I love all the variety you came up with for the color combo! I bet your gal was thrilled! We are already getting our snowstorm. It's been snowing since yesterday and it's only 2 above zero right now. I'm not looking forward to clearing the walks & driveway once it stops with the wind blowing either! I hope yours fizzles out!

  2. They look wonderful!!! I can't believe you came up with so many different cards using just three simple colors.
