CASology Leaf

Wow! It's been quite awhile since my last post. It's nice to be sharing a card with you. I had totally lost my mojo - AGAIN! I swear it happens to me more than anyone else - not sure why that is, but it always feels good to create again!

I wanted to make a card for the CASology challenge. This week, the cue word is "leaf." I love the Classic Holly stamp from Hero Arts, so thought I'd get it out to play. 

I know it could be even more clean and simple, and I'm continually working on that. Really, all I did was stamp, color, cut and adhere, so for me, it's fairly CAS. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

Barb, this is SO beautiful! I love how you stamped the holly, cut into squares, and then SO perfectly placed them in your design. Your coloring is always THE BEST! Your mojo is definitely back!

HUGS!

Barb, are you sure it left? Because this card is jaw dropping gorgeous, and so creative how you divided the image into four squares.

Gorgeous card Barb, I have also been having mojo problems off and on since my holiday back in August, I just can't get motivated...The dynamics in our house have changed since my DD came back to live and its really affecting my creative flow!

Barb this is a great Clean and Simple card. Love the design! I always struggle with CAS, I tend to add too many details in my cards.
