CCC #164



It's time for a new Cue Card at CASology!
This week's Cue is:


Deciding when to leave well enough alone.
When I stamped this card I knew the recipient and the message that I wanted to convey. After I finished it I started to second guess if I should put 'congratulations' above the make a splash! My CAS loving heart knew that that was enough.



Pop over and have a look at what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you...





Guest Designer: Bhavana

I am also submitting this to Darnell's NBUS challenge.





I hope you play along with us again this week!

Not naked at all Tracey - just a perfect little scene. The puddle grounds the umbrella so it's not floating and your coloring is beautiful!

Bhavana said...

Such a sweet and beautiful card :)

sweet card..

Lindsey said...

Good choice! That it's a congrats card is understood already, I think, and another line of sentiment might have thrown this great CAS card off-balance. I really like it!

Happy Dance said...

*Sigh* I love this sweet CAS card, Tracey. The soft greens of the little umbrella, and the shadow it forms is perfect. And just the right sentiment; not too much, not too little. So sweet. Bev

Hi Tracey ~ I love the sweet simplicity of this card. Your coloring is lovely and you "grounded" the umbrella by adding the puddle below. Perfection!

Barb Ghig said...

I think you stopped at just the right time, Tracey! Your CAS design is perfect and I love how you placed the puddle under the umbrella! Such a sweet card!

Joyce said...

Wonderful card, and it has just enough and not too much of everything. Love the way you did the shading, shadows and puddle. Will you come over some time and give me a lesson?
