Fall Fun

Hello Friends! Look at this, I'm posting two days in a row! Whoooo! I decided to work on my clean and simple card making skills and I joined the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays. I found them on Pinterest and I loved the idea of being inspired each week to create a CAS card. So, for my first entry, the challenge is

We are to create a card inspired by Autumn. Yay! My favorite season is finally coming onto the scene! Here is my card..

I pulled out a lot of 'vintage' (LOL!) Close to My Heart products for this card. I love trees. And when I saw the challenge, I knew immediately that I wanted to use a tree. This is the first time this set is seeing ink. Which is sad, because I've had it for many, many years. Now, I know that CAS has a lot to do with 'white space'. But I thought having that slim border of Autumn Terracotta was just the ticket! I love how this turned out.

Lovely card, Barb. That stamp is a winner and so is your card. CAS is hard to achieve and you've done it elegantly!
