I was working on this card today … and suddenly realised that the deadline for the challenge was TODAY!!! So … I decided to give you all a bonus post … and get this online and try and meet the deadline! (2hrs 31mins to go!!!) 😀 Now … the Paper Players #64 challenge is for a CLEAN & SIMPLE CARD using an animal or plant! I must say … CAS cards do confuse me a little. Sometimes you look at a CAS challenge and even the DT cards are quite detailed with several layers & lots of ribbons & embellishments. Other CAS challenges ask for lots of “white space” (which doesn’t necessarily mean “white” … it just means lots of “open space”). So … I am always at a loss to know how much detail to add. It is hard to know exactly what “CAS” means for each challenge. Well … I guess it is just important to HAVE FUN … and enjoy your stamping … and don’t stress about it all. So … that is what I did! 😀
It’s a funny place to start … but I created this card AROUND this brand new “Champagne Glass Stampin’ Glitter” that arrived in my order this week. I sooo wanted to play with it … but was mindful that this was supposed to be a CAS challenge … so I didn’t want to overdo it! This is such a pretty glitter … and completely different to the chunky sprinkles that I have used before. This is actually tiny glass fragments … and not the even circles of the chunky sprinkles. So … it seems to give a much brighter sparkle! I am imagining this on Chrissy cards … and I think it will be quite gorgeous!
Well … better fly … before that deadline passes. After all … that is the reason I am here again today. Don’t forget to check my other card posted today! (Scroll down further!) See you all soon! Hugs xx
