DDS Challenge ~ CAS

Christmas card 020
Hey, I’m back again, second post of the day and this time to let you know the new theme over at the Digi Doodle Shop Challenge, this week we’d like to see some Clean and Simple (CAS) projects. I think some of my favourite cards are CAS cards although sometimes they start off as CAS cards and then I get carried away lol.
For my card I have used a beautiful poinsettia image from the Digi Doodle Shop, I have coloured it with promarkers, cut it out and curved it to make it pop. I embossed my white card with a snowflakes embossing folder and used some beautiful satin ribbon I found in my stash, finished off with a little Christmas sentiment, not much else to say lol.  Oh yeah, I found these little yellow stamens (think thats what there called lol) so added those to the centre of the image, go perfectly I think. Hope you join in the challenge this week, for some CAS inspiration, pop  over to the challenge blog and see what the amazing design team have come up with.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafts and Me ~ Add a flower
I Love Promarkers ~ Christmas in July
Clear It Out ~ Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad ~ Christmas in July
Paper Sundaes ~ Christmas in July
2 Sisters Challenge ~ Christmas In July
