One of the first blogs that I started to follow was Simply Less is More.  They have a clean and simple challenge every Saturday.  I'm not sure why I was drawn to follow it as CAS is a style that I find difficult and I certainly wouldn't describe it as 'my style' at all.  I have, very rarely, been tempted to have a go and, as I had a week off this week, I decided to give it a go.  The challenge this week was to create a CAS card with patterned paper on it.

Here's my effort

I used the colourful flowers set from Digistamp Boutique and printed the branch and some flowers onto card stock.  I coloured the leaves with promarkers before printing the flowers onto patterned paper.  I layered my panel and the sentiment on the same paper and added large brads or small gems to the flower before assembly.  I need to thank Hannalie from the Desert Diva Blog as the sentiment is one of her freebies.  Now there is a lady who has nailed the CAS style and I'm in awe of her work. I stalk her blog on Bloglovin and I would definitely recommend a visit.

This week's posts are all turning into a fan fest. I'm obviously spending too much time on Bloglovin.

I hope you like my card.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
