Clean and Simple - or just plain boring?!!!

I thought I'd try my hand again at a CAS card, but I don't think I like it at all!! I just want to keep on adding to it but have held off - it takes nerves of steel! I'll leave it be for a while and see if my hands itch to add some gems or a ribbon, lol! I haven't even done the inside yet in case I decide to take it apart and start again!

I am submitting this card into two challenges, the Quixotic challenge to use black, white and one other colour and the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge to do a clean and simple card....

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: CC Designs Swiss Sweater Birgitta
Mediums: Copic markers
Accents: American Crafts rub on sentiment
Tools: Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Nestabilities large scallop rectangle die, corner chomper

I love it Mary J but if you want to add something but not overdo it, how about a little glitter to her wings? You know me and glitter!! Unless that's against the rules of a CAS card which I know nothing about lol. xx

Nothing simple about CAS cards is there. Its so hard not to keep adding to them. Well, I find them so hard to do anyways. You on the other hand have done a beautiful job. Your card is sweet and definitely not boring.

I love your card and definitely do not find it boring. Your coloring is beautiful. I also find it so hard to make CAS cards. I guess I just love the glitter and sparkle too much lol! This is perfect.

Well, I like it! The focus is on the beautifully coloured image and I don't think the card needs embellishing.

Know what you mean mary, I always feel the card is a bit naked when i do this type. The dark blue you have used really sets it off though so you totally aced it.

Wow, your colouring is amazing!!! I'm not too familiar with CAS but love the textured CS and the colour with B&W always works well :)
