Really CAS


I admire people who do CAS well without it looking like the card needs more adding to it. I had the idea of using this image from Scrapberry's from Funky Kits with a new stamp I bought last week. The card was made for a friend whose Birthday was on Tuesday. She recently bought a new camera and has just been to San Francisco and as she is made about pink the card just had to be pink. She will also appreciate the significance of the quote.

The image has been coloured with Copics and I simply doodled around the edge and double matted. I think I may try this style again as I have to say I am really pleased with how it turned out.
