Trying to perfect CAS

I'm still working on perfecting my CAS style.  I feel like there is still more room for improvement, but I've made 4 cards that I am relatively pleased with!  I'll share 2 in this post and 2 in another later today. :)

Here's the first card~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~

IBSIC-#51



I've used stamps and glitter washi tape from Inspired by Stamping and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

I love the way this one turned out!  I'm going to use it for an Easter card--I think the sentiment is appropriate to define our Savior's Atonement, don't you?

Here's the second card~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~


(You're the Inspiration by Chicago)


This card uses floral stamps from Basic Grey and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I actually hand drew the "frame" around the top white piece.  I was inspired by THIS TULIP CARD by Chrissie over at Less Is More.  I like the white on white layers--it's CAS but just looks cool, you know?

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my cards!  I hope you've been inspired to create something today!  You could enter that into some of these fabulous challenges! :)  HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
