CASology Week 87 - Blush

Good Afternoon,

I think we have stumped a few of you with our last couple of Cue Cards at CASology so hopefully this week will be a bit easier.  This week's word is 'Blush', I hope from the design team you can see the different directions you can go with this word.

For my first card I just went with a 'Blush' colour, which is really just pink!  To keep my card CAS and still have lots of white space I die cut a circle of some rather 'fussy' stamping and sponging and mounted that on my card base.

Supplies Used:
Stampin Up - Sponge Daubers
Hero Arts - Butterflies
Clearly Besotted - Mini Banners

For my next card the phrase 'Blushing Bride' was my inspiration. This card could easily be a one layer card, however I printed my digi stamp onto card and mounted it onto the card base instead.  By doing this I have added a little bit more interest to the card without losing that all important white space. 

Now it's over to you guys, I can't wait to see what Clean and Simple ideas you all come up with this week, but before you get started have a quick visit round the rest of the Design Team for further inspiration.

Guest Designer - Jeanne

And our wonderful Sponsor - Stamps and Scrapbooks
