I really like going to the CAS blog for inspiration, because when I do, about 1/3 of the thinking is done for me! I can create an original, but I don't need to figure out where to put stuff! I just choose colors and stamps and go! So many times I find a cute card to CASe, but I like it so much that I don't really make it mine. I just copy, and I am pretty good at that! But with the CAS blog, it is more my creation! Capeesh?
I used the new In Color, Pool Party for the base. The color selection came from the Color Coach, and I added So Saffron and Not Quite Navy. The bird is from PTI and the sentiment is from my score at the $1 bin last week! Aren't they great!
The CS and ink are, of course, SU!
This is FTL #156 on CAS. Some have used ribbon for the narrow strip behind the circle, some have used DSP, I went with stamping! I have these great circle border stamps from PTI that I rarely use, cuz I don't really know what to do with them. But they were perfect for today!
Tomorrow I will have another card to show you using the same layout. I actually have a library of sketches on my computer that I refer to when I need something to start with! Try it!
