CASology 200th Challenge Celebration and Blog Candy!

IMG_0205

It's time for a new cue card at CASology!
Can you believe that it is our 200th Challenge?
This week we are celebrating with our 200th that captures the true meaning of CASology:


My CAS card came together like this. I used LOTS of white space and my main focal image was a single bloom from Happy Little Stampers Doodled Blooms (that I just received on Monday). So that the image was floating aimlessly on my card front I stamped it onto a small white frame to grounded. I added some foam tape to the back of the frame for dimension and finished off with a gold embossed sentiment.

TIPS: Every week at CASology all of the designers add a tip on designing CAS cards. You will see this on the challenge post at CASology. Right under each photo it says design defined...

Several members of the DT will be offering blog candy. Each DT member who is participating will select a random commenter from their blog who also linked up a card at CASology. Winners will be announced on each DT blog as well as on the CASology blog next Monday.

I am giving away Papertrey Ink's A Second Helping of Sunshine and the dies.
I thought a perfect set for some fresh summertime cards.



Now it's your turn! Remember to leave a comment here AND link up a card at CASology for a chance to win my blog candy!
