After a really flat sleepy week I made a couple of cards today...

They both fit with CASEStudy (design) and CASual Fridays (two circles) and I'm also going to enter them into Crafty Ribbons (clean and simple).

I intended the buttons to be my two circles.  I layered them up with glue gel to give good dimension.

I used washi for the grid lines on the card.  I used the offcuts of washi to brighten up the inside of the card... they looked like little flag pennants... and I can't bear to watse anything!!

The letter stickers are circles too... so I guess I ended up with 7 circles instead of two...

Now I'm really confused about the term Clean And Simple.
What does it actually mean?
How clean?
How simple?
How much 'stuff' is allowed?

I'm going to go ahead and enter them and see what you think...
comments on the cards and the whole Clean and Simple concept gratefully recieved!!


  1. Hi Laura, thanks for visiting my blog & leaving such a nice comment on my card.
    Your card is very cute! Lovely colours! Good luck in the challenges!
    Hugs Tanya xx

  2. This is a very cool design! I am still learning I don't have much advice to give-I just try to study other CAS cards and why they were voted as "CAS". Hope that helps.

  3. Cool as a breeze, beautiful CAS card. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the sweet comments. Hugs

  4. Wonderful!! Love the use of Washi tape and sentiment! I think you interpret CAS rather well! Thanks for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  5. Gorgeous card! Love, love, love that washi! Thanks for playing along this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  6. Absolutely clean and simple. CAS is in the eye of the beholder, but I think not a ton of layering...Gorgeous card! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  7. I like green and brown combination. And the design of your card is great too. Thank you for playing with us at Crafyt ribbons!
