For my card today, I would love to say that I chose to do a CAS card because I wanted to make a CAS card, but the truth is that I colored up an image panel (Skippy Dee with Wee Love You Bunches), but the fuzzy-cutting ruined the image and it was way too late to start coloring another image.  Thus, I only have a super CAS card to share that I am almost shameful to show  : /  I've used the new Chandelier die and a sentiment from the A Touch of Elegant Furniture set.



Make sure to visit the rest of the participating blogs today because I'm sure that they have something much better in store for you!

Claudia said...

Hello Ann,

sorry about hearing of the ruined image. But I like CAS cards as well. And I think they are much more complicated because every time you want to add something more on a CAS card you must say "no" to yourself.

Hugs

Claudia

Nikki said...

Hiya Ann! Great replaement card. Did you cut the die out of the front of blue stock then white wash it? or is the dp washed already? Really quick and simple card and would make fabulous christmas cards with a tree die??? hmmm!
Hugs and congrats for not dropping out of the hop!

Dear, your CAS is lovely. I know it is disappointing when you have something in mind and already planned to have to shift gears, but your "shift" is a card to be proud of. LUV the new products that are being released.

Carla S. said...

Sorry about your other card, Ann, but this one is very elegant!

Joanne O'Brien said...

Too bad the image you colored got ruined! We all know about those things happening after you put a lot of thought and time into making a card. I liked the card you did post! That chandelier is great.

ChrisAndCat said...

Oh no, how frustrating to colour the image and then it is spoiled. That said, I cannot do CAS cards, but you have done it perfectly with this, the chandelier is so elegant, I like it in the blue. Metallics would look good too for this die.

angelic said...

I love the new Kenny K stamps.

Laura said...

The chandelier on your card is a wonderful image and very much looks like the chandelier above my dining table. I decorate mine up for each of the holidays and can imagine dressing up this image in the same way.
