Clean and Simple

Hello and I'm back again - but a bit later than I should be really! It's time for a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and our lovely Carol has challenged us with 'Clean and Simple'.  Thanks a lot Carol - not! lol!  Now much as I admire CAS cards when I see them on people's blogs, I just can't seem to manage it myself - my attempts just seem to look unfinished! So this was definitely a challenge for me!  Anyway, I've used a gorgeous stamp from Stamposaurus that I was lucky enough to win recently at Lilis Little Fairies challenge

I've coloured the cute cupcake with promarkers and added some glitter and glossy accents on the icing

Shame I'm not a very good photographer!  I've embossed a panel of coredinations card with Embossalicious 'floral frenzy' embossing folder. I've added some white satin ribbon from stash and some pastel pink spotty ribbon from Joanna Sheen. The sentiment tags are from LOTV with gems from stash. 
Well, I'm still not convinced about my CAS technique - it's definitely simple but keep thinking there's something missing lol! 
Anyway, I hope you'll pop over to Totally Papercrafts and have a look at the great inspiration from the DT and then join in! 
Back soon,

  10. Ooh, yum Kim! Pink and cake - perfect!

  11. I completely understand what you mean. Everytime I make a CAS card I have a feeling there's something missing too and I always want to add some more embellishments etc. But this card has everything - it's yummy and it's pink and also has the bling. Something missing? I don't think so. I whink you did a great job with it! Thanks for joining our challenge at Crafty ribbons!
