Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #54 - CAS, Crazy 4 Challenges C4CC194 - Marine Life and CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #109 - Polka Dots

Hello friends and followers - hope that today brings you many smiles and blessings.  Time for another fun challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! (ATS&M).  ATS&M Challenge #54 is to make a CAS card.  You get to choose the theme, the colors, the stamps or the digis - but whatever you choose it must be CAS in style.  If you aren't sure what CAS (Clean and Simple) means, the jest of it is that there is plenty of "white" space (could be a color other than white but is generally not a busy pattern), has clean lines and limited embellishments and layering.  If you want to know more about this style of card making, just go visit the ATS&M site for more details.  

My card is made using a TAWS (The Alley Way Stamps) digital image that I picked up quite awhile ago but hadn't had an occasion to use it until now.  Isn't it just too, too cute?  I decided to go with bright tropical colors for my fish and the matting.  I added some texture to that lovely amount of white space with my perfect polka dots embossing texture folder (one of my favorites).  I punched out a few extra bubbles and placed them on the card as well.  This is going to a friend who's been having a tough time.  She knows if she just waits it out it will pass - I'm giving her some encouragement with "Just keep Swimming". 

The copics I used are: YR14, YR16, BG53, BG10, BG13.  Quite please with how it turned out :o) Hope you like it too.

So hurry on over to ATS&M and see what other lovely creations our DT has made to inspire you to play along this week.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'm also joining the fun over at Crazy 4 Challenges C4CC - Marine Life and CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #109 - Polka Dots (I hope the bubbles and embossing count as polka dots). 
Thanks for stopping by today, I'm so glad that you did.  Til next time...hugs and happy crafting friends! D
