Less is More - A CAS Challenge card

A very dear blogging friend, Chrissie from the blog 'Simply One of a Kind' along with another blogging friend Mandi from 'Enchated Occasions' have set up a brand new challenge blog and named it 'Less is More', which basically is all about clean and simple cards.

Their very first challenge was launched on Saturday 5th February - and they kicked off with a colour challenge; pink white and black.

My cards can never usually be accused of being CAS so, I thought this was definately the challenge for me.

If you want to visit this new challenge blog - click HERE and have a look at what Mandi and Chrissie have come up with.

Here is my entry to the challenge:

The sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp and the image is a digi from the latest Funky Hand CD - 'Craft the Year Away' which has been cut with a Spellbinders nestibility.

The pink and black are basically strips of card stock - the pink being pearlescent.

No embellishments or ribbons in sight - I really think my card is quite CAS - clean and simple - with lots of white space as required!

I could get to like this look - and to be honest, it was one of the quickest cards i've ever made. 

Thanks for looking - hope to see you back in the playground soon.
