Less is More AND Addicted to CAS

Woo hoo!  I have returned home from a wonderful holiday with our daughter and her family at Peregian Beach on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, and am delighted to discover that the challenge I want to enter at Less is More also coincides with challenge #35 at Addicted to CAS.  LIM is having a Lucky Dip week, and the theme is 'Round and Round', whilst the ATCAS theme is 'Wheels'.
My lovely daughter brought with her some gorgeous stamps to feed my addiction (and for my recent birthday) and so I chose one of those (by Hampton Art)  for my card this week.

I minimally coloured it with Distress Markers, but added a spot of Glossy Accents to the balloon.  A day later, I added the hand-drawn border, using a die as a template.  I'm so grateful for receiving such a beautiful stamp, which lends itself so well to the CAS style I'm still trying to come to grips with.

  10. Love this card and the accent with the balloon heart. I think you ladies who do the CAS style are the cleverest out there, less is more. I too am 'learning' as I go x Beverley x

  15. Lovely card Ann, and I think you have got to grips with the style beautifully! I used to love making cards with as much on as I could possibly get but am converted to CAS now. Did you handwrite the sentiment, it's super neat if you did! Stef
