The challenge this week at Dies R Us Challenge Blog is all about leaves. Sometimes when I look at my designs, I feel like I am in a rut....doing the same card in different colors. I love the shape of the oval and when I look at my cards, I recognize how often I use one somewhere on my card so I decided no ovals on this card. Almost all my cards have flowers and or butterflies and lots of layers. I decided to take some inspiration from my team mate, LAURIE, who knows how to layer die cuts and still be CAS. I admired Laurie's designs long before we were on a team together so I was thrilled to join the DRU Challenge Blog Team when she did. CAS is soooo difficult for me, but for this card I decided to challenge myself and create a CAS card with no butterflies, flowers, or ovals. I did, however, use a lot of embossing powder on the leaves, the sentiment, the background dots, and the mat.
