Clean and Simple


I can't believe it!  I made it through the first two challenges for the CAS Summer DT on SplitcoastStampers.
Now there are 19 super talented ladies and me in the running for the next challenges.  Challenge 3 was to make a card using pop dots/dimensionals.  We also have the option of making two cards.  The theme is Summer/Amusement Park.
I have used this LO's quick, easy.  I chose this bright Summer Sunrise from Papertrey to give it a summery feel.  Both the flower and the panel are popped up. 
Paper - Neenah Classic
Ink - Memorex, Copic markers
Stamps - Papertrey  Friends Til the End
Accessories - PTI Summer Sunrise ribbon, dimensionals

Here's my second card.   It also qualifies for the 4th challenge to make something moveable on your card.  The propellers on the airplane turn!  I just cut an extra set (ask me how many I cut before I got one to stay together!) of propellers and used a brad to make them turn.  Since texture is also a criteria I tried to add some extra on this one.  The clouds are heat embossed and popped up, the airplane is covered with Crystal Effects as well as embossed.  I dropped a teensy bit of embossing powder on the plane body to simulate dents...this pilot is no sissy!  The plane is cut out and popped on dimensionals as well. 

Our grandson's bedroom is decorated in these colors and theme.  My DH has always called our sons "Buddy" so the sentiment is special to me.

What do you think?

I love both of these cards Charlene! CAS is tough for me, I always end up adding "just one more thing" and over-doing it.
Love the moving propellors on the plane!
