Magical Monday - Softly Afloat CAS

Aloha and welcome to another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes! This week Sue set the challenge using this lovely image (Softly Afloat) by Nina and she wants to see us make a CAS (Clean and Simple) card. Well, I'm not totally pleased with this one, but it'll do (not happy with the color combo but it's something different) :) Anyway, I printed the image on soft sky paper and colored with a white gel pen, an always artichoke maker and a starburst pen. Hard to tell but the summer sun paper is embossed with the Pattern 1 plate from SU! Sentiment is from the "Of the Earth" SU! set. I did finish the inside simply with white paper lattice punched across the bottom (didn't take a picture though).

This week's random winner gets a trip to Nina's store to pick out an image! FUN!!

Here's some other challenges for this one:
1. Alphabet Challenge Blog - B for Butterflies
2. Creatalicious Challenges - create something with flowers and wings
3. Flutter By Wednesday's - creation with butterfly, fairy or angel
4. If the Shoe Fits… - mother's day or special lady in your life projects
5. Jacksonbelle embellishments - wedding cake inspiration photo
6. No Time to Stamp - card or project for Mother's Day
7. Polka Doodles - Summer Blossoms
8. Raise the Bar - For Mom
9. Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog - What you have made for the mothers in your life
10. Stamping 411 - sketch

Aloha,

I like CAS cards and this is gorgeous! The curry is brighter than your 'other' cards but it really sets off the image. Good job DD! Have a great day, I'll call later.

Love, SAM aka MOM

You do CAS very well! Love your flowers white! I have trouble with those plates... I put extra paper under my B plate so it embosses deeper!
