CCC #102

Ready for another new Cue Card at CASology?
This week's word is:




After I stamped my balloon dog on the card, I was back and forth whether or not to add the stars.  Usually I would just let the white space be, but with my square card design it didn't look quite right.  I added three star clusters around the image to frame it. I added clear Wink of Stella to the dog and the stars, of course you can't see it, it is hiding from the lens.  It is there and looks really fun!

1.  One main image--balloon dog
2.  Lots of open space
3.  Limited layers & embellishments
4.  Quick & easy to recreate

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.
