Clean and Simple (CAS) - at Glitter N Sparkle CH43

Happy Sunday, my lovely friends and blog followers, can I just take a moment to thank you all for your comments on my cards, I get a right fuzzy feeling, when I read them, so thank you for taking the time out of your day...

Today there is a new challenge at Glitter N Sparkle - CH43 - Clean and Simple (CAS).  I was very lucky to play with an image from Cootsy Designs (designer at Stitchy Bear Stamps), this wonderful Tiger, and Backing Paper, now Clean and Simple is well outside my comfort zone, and it took me a good few days, to photograph the card and add it to the challenge blog, as each time I picked it up, I wanted to add to it...but I took the plunge and here it is...simply coloured with my Pan Pastels (Yellow and Red), that I won, a few weeks ago, I totally love Pan Pastels and am hopefully going to be adding a few more colours on Wednesday, thank you Adrian at McOyster Crafts at Poles Apart, for keeping them aside for me...much appreciated....Added Raffia and a sentiment...hope you like this card...will enjoy finding out..

So the Sponsors for this week are:-

Bugaboo - 7 Images from their Store
Floppy Latte - $6 Gift Certificate for their Store

Ingrid Mason said...

What a lovely card with such a tropical feeling. For the 'Clean and Simple' you really have hit upon a brilliant image. With your brilliant colouring of the stamp and adding the raffia bow, you have shown every element off to such good effect. Sometimes 'less is more' and this is very much a More card. Well done x

Laine said...

Fabulous tiger image Avril. Great CAS style card.

Fit Kitty said...

Hi, Avril. I love how you coloured the tiger - he looks real - like he could get up and walk off the card. You did a wonderful job on your CAS card - the raffia is a perfect touch.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
