Clean and Simple Monday

Two CAS cards for you today.  The first is for the CAS117 Challenge over at SCS.  It's a color challenge to use brown, white, light blue and tan.  My mind went immediately to the beach. 

May Arts is having a beach themed challenge this month.  I'm so excited about this challenge.  May Arts has so many beautiful, natural ribbons to choose from!  I just happen to live a few miles from the beach and the SCS colors are so natural to the area.

Supplies:  Paper - Bazzill Basics, Neenah Classic Solar White, PTI Dark Chocolate
Stamps - Impression Obsession
Ink - Tim Holtz Walnut Stain
Accessories - May Arts Burlap Twine, Burlap, shells

The Play Date Cafe #79 color challenge was really interesting this week.  Sadly, I needed a sympathy card so decided to see what I could do with those colors.  There is a tiny bit of glitter pen at the base of the leaves that looks really nice IRL.

Supplies:  Paper - SU Dark Grey, Riding Hood Red, White
Stamps - PTI Out on a Limb
Ink - SU Dark Grey, Versafine Lime
Accessories - Sakura Glitter pen, ribbon, embroidery floss, Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive

Pin It!

Both of them are lovely... LOVE the look of the first - PERFECT in every sense of the word. The strip of jute gives it so much character.

And the second one is delicate and pretty. The ribbon looks so nice.
