I decided to enter one of my cards into a card making challenge (CAS-ual Fridays). I am a little bit uncertain whether I am doing everything right because I have never done this before . . .
For those who do not know: CAS means Clean And Simple. Clean and simple is not something that comes naturally to me and I always struggle to get the balance right. So this was quite a challenge to
me ;) I decided to make a Mother's Day card since it will be mother's day in South Africa soon. Here is the card:
The card base is white (always looks pink because of me trying to take photos in bad light at night :/ ) and so is the single flower. I used my copic markers (G00; YG03; G14; B02 & B05) to make the stripy paper and edged it with my memento Bahama blue ink pad. The sentiment was stamped in Danube blue, also from memento and then I edged the card with a fine blue felt tip marker and added the blue bling on the corners.
I like the way it looks except that the part of me that struggles with CAS is telling me that it needs something more inside the frame but then it will not be CAS anymore . . .
So, here goes . . .
