Tuesday Throwdown #309: Clean and Simple

Good morning, friends! Time for a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown. This week we are playing "Clean and Simple". Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said. CAS  cards are supposed to be quick to produce... in theory. But not for me. I've never been very successful at making anything CAS and that's because I don't know when to stop fiddling with my card... as you will see below.

I'm using the Stained Glass Floral Doodledallion to create a CAS card. No patterned paper, no embellishment, no sentiment. I just coloured the images with Graph 'It markers, fussy cut them and popped up each layer on foam tape for a dimensional look.

You can see from the picture below the several layers to the flower. Guess I'm pushing the boundaries  of CAS with this one!

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Clean and Simple". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK on Monday, September 5th. And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

Sorry I haven't been around much this past week. Hubby was down for the weekend and I've been super busy helping a friend with her wedding last Saturday. So I decided to give myself a blog break  ... there just wasn't enough hours in a day!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a beautiful day, friends!
