Very CAS

Hi everyone,

Now tell me something, why are the simplest cards the most difficult to do?  This week's challenge over at Less is More is to follow a very simple sketch ...

        or 


I'm more of a straight line person than a curvy one so I went for the square option.  I tried various images and colours before settling on this inky scrap I found in one of my "can't waste this tiny scrap, might come in handy one day" boxes.



Image is PaperArtsy, butterfly punch is Martha Stewart, Sentiment is Papermania, various distress inks.

Thanks for visiting, hope you all have a great week.

Suze xx

I'm going through the 'can't throw away' pile of scraps at the moment. Our dining room is such a mess! And then I see the stunning card you've made from your scraps and it becomes even more of a difficult decision!

I have often asked myself the same question ! A cas card takes me hours and even days could it be that I am a messy crafter I dont know ! Love however this beauty ! love the glorious colours, beautiful stamping and the butterfly is a gorgeous addition and in my humble opinion the colour is fantastic !
