JUGs Challenge #47...

Lately I seem to be using my line drawn images more than usual and today is no exception.   I also seem to be making alot of my cards in the clean and simple (CAS) style and again, today is no exception.  I think I'm in a rut, but what to do?  Just go with it.... I guess! However, for my next card I'm really going to try to get out of my CAS mode and do something a little less simple.  I don't want to be a "one trick pony" ya know???  

Today's card is for the current JUGs challenge (#47), a color challenge.  The colors are hot pink, lime green & teal.   A super fun color combo.  I really like the sketches that Taylor put together each Friday, but seldom get a chance to use one for a card, so I was determined to use this week's sketch, TESC sketch #125.   Taylor has put together a fantastic group of ladies for her TESC design team and I always enjoy taking a look at what they come up with.  This week  I really liked how TESC DT member, Rachel Sztonyk , approached the sketch and so not only is my card a CAS card, it is also to a certain extent a CASEd card!

I got out a favorite PTI set, Friends til the End, for the floral images and used some of my Spellbinders dies, as well.  All the ink is SU!.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set Thoughtful Messages, currently one of my go to sentiments sets. 

Thanks for taking a peek... hope your day was lovely!
