A "CAS" from the Past Blog Hop!...

It's another Blast From the Past Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions! This month, Clean & Simple is the word, and I thought I would make a card with a little boy feel. There are a lot of interpretations of what "CAS" means -- lots of white space, no frills, single-layer -- but I don't think there is any correct answer.


For my card I stamped the adorable little turtle from Kid at Heart and added some Glossy Accents to create a shiny shell. I kept things simple but added texture with an impression plate and a nice fat ribbon, but tied with just a knot. Sometimes it's hard to pare down, especially with so many crafting goodies just screaming to be used!
