ATSM Challenge #94 CAS

Hello friends, hope each and every one of you are doing well today :o)
Here it is the first challenge of May at Addicted to Stamps and More- my how time flies!
ATSM Challenge #94 is CAS (Clean and Simple).

You may have notice that stenciling has been quite the rage lately.
After seeing many amazing examples and watching a couple videos on this technique
I decided to give it a go.  It turned out to be so much fun that I taught it to my card group.

Here's one of my cards that I made using a plastic painting stencil:

A big, bold image can still be CAS if you keep all other elements such as 
layers and embellishments minimal, and leave some white space around it.  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create - Challenge #70 Anything Goes (no twist for me)
Crazy 4 Challenges 234 - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Dragon Fly Dreams Challenge #5 - How Does Your Garden Grow 
Less Is More Week 170 Color Challenge - use 3 colors or 3 shades of color
(I used 3 colors: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight & Gumball Green)
Love to Create Challenge #114 - Say it With Flowers
STAMPlorations - May Challenge: Stamps & Flowers (my sentiment is stamped)

I hope that I've inspired you to play along with ATSM Challenge #94 CAS this week. 
My lovely and uber CAS talented ATSM DT pals have made some gorgeous
CAS cards to further inspire you.  Please go visit them and say "hi".

  6. It's a great tip to add a big bold image for a CAS design, there's still lots of white space and it's clean and elegant!

  7. This is so bright and bold. The pops of yellow are lovely.
