Life is ART, Paint your DREAMS


Hi everyone.  Time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS.

This challenge is being hosted by the very talented Ksenija (Sweet Kobylkin). She chose this fabulous code word ...







I thought an "artsy" design was fitting for this large sentiment which is the main focal point of the card.  I sponged light blue over a mesh stencil for the background, and then used two different splat stamps to add more interest in lime green and bright blue.  Then I stamped the sentiment in the same bright blue to finish the card.  Easy and quick card to make.

This month, we are excited to have Dawn (Designs by Dragonfly) as our Guest Designer.  Please click HERE to see Dawn's amazing Dream card ... and the cards from the rest of the very talented Design Team.  I know you'll be inspired to join in.

Come join in the fun!  Make a CAS (clean and simple) card that shows your interpretation of "Dream" and link to our challenge.  Hope to see you in the gallery.

Thanks for stopping by!
