Welcome to my addiction!

Thank you for stopping in and looking around. I am an admitted paperholic and try to participate in all things stamped. In the past I have taught classes on unique techniques at our LSS and have loved every minute of it. My mind continues to want to create and share. I garner my inspiration from fellow bloggers, our LSS, and some of the horticulture magazines that come in the mail. Simple pleasures in life make me smile and that includes a simple yet elegant card or piece of paper that I see potential. Please feel free to share your work with me as I share my work with you. Enjoy your visit!

A CAS card, I think ;)

This next card is another one of my attempts at a CAS card.  I just can't seem to get past the card seeming empty without just a little bling, but there are no layers, no flowers, no extra stamping, just a basic white card with some ink, some rhinestones and a butterfly (from PizzazzAplenty), some Twine, a button, scalloped edge die and sentiment (PTI), Embossing Powders (Stampin Up) and a doily stamp (Hero Arts S5319).
Cardstock is Bazzil.  Whew!  I think I have everything listed now.  I must admit, although there isn't what I would call layer's on this card, if you look at the "belly band" you might challenge me on this.

But when the layered area is only 1/2" wide, I don't think that counts.  I have seen a lot of "CAS" cards out there that just didn't fit what I thought was CAS, so, I went and looked up what CAS actually meant and the definition that I found was: a card with more open white than any other color, typically with no layers, and generally with only one or two other colors".  Well, this one fits the description and I guess it isn't too bad looking.   I'll send it off as a Birthday card to someone who is homebound and I am sure they will like it.  Hope you enjoy :)
