Can CAS Be Shabby???
I know it sounds like CAS can't be shabby because CAS stands for "clean and simple", but I think in certain instances CAS can be shabby. Take for instance my card for the current Shabby Tea Room challenge. Don't you just love that inspiration photo?? The basic idea of the card is CAS with limited use of embellishments and lots of "white" or in this case, "kraft" space, but I was able to shabby it up by distressing the patterned paper, using stamps that lend themselves to the shabby chic look and adding some lace. The stamps are from a favorite Stampin Up! set called "Bliss". I just love the damask image and the little flower that comes with the set.
Thanks for taking a peek...
