Celebrating 200 CAS Challenges!

This is a special Tuesday at CASology--we're celebrating our
200th challenge! Our cue card this week gets back to
why we're here every Tuesday: CAS! 



Tiddly Inks had a sale over the holiday, and I couldn't resist this digital stamp For the Birds! I typed in "HAPPY 200TH CASology" then printed it. I colored the image in with prismacolor pencils and added the music notes. By confining my image to 1/3 of the card, I've kept lots of white space and a colorful focal point.

As a HUGE thank you to all of our card artists that play along---We've got major GIVEAWAYS this week! Each DT member who is participating will select a random commenter from their blog who also linked up a card at CASology for this week's cue card. Winners will be announced on each DT member's blog as well as on the CASology blog next Tuesday.

As a reminder, here are some points from the CASology blog to keep in mind when you are creating a card in the CAS (clean and simple) style:

1. One main image
2. Lots of open space--uncluttered
3. Limited layers and embellishments
4. Quick and easy to recreate (note--it may take a long time to get a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake)

Now it's your turn! Remember to leave a comment here AND link up a card at CASology 
for a chance to win my blog candy!

** I'm gifting a $15 Gift Certificate to Ellen Hutson :) **
