I thought about this one for a while! One of my goals for the upcoming year is to simplify things....declutter, reorganize, and make things clean and simple.....I think we all have had this goal at some point. For me, it is an annual resolution that I try to keep, but somehow get sidetracked and all of my good intentions go undone. Sooo, like clock work, it's December so it's time for that oh so familiar "clean and organize" resolution again.....lol! Yeah, it's usually followed by another repeat resolution to get more exercise and eat healthier....sound familiar? Enough said about that...lol! So, for my card, I decided to have my card style reflect my goal. I know, not exactly what it says, but I think I embraced the spirit of the challenge, don't you? And to be quite honest...this "clean and simple" card took me just as long if not longer than my other cards usually do! I struggle with CAS style....just like I struggle with those resolutions I mentioned above...but I stuck with it.
The little tea cup is from the retired Christmas Tea set and the sentiment is from Snow Wonderful . I used a couple of die cut layers using Spellbinder's Mat Basics A and B sets, Flourishes Classic White card stock and the darkest red paper from the Color Made Easy Poppy collection. I edged my image panel with a Krylon 18KT Gold Leafing pen....no, I have not found mine yet. I borrowed this one from my mom. I only used a few Copics to color the tea cup and that finished up my card. Whew! I did it...a CAS card! Now, let's see what you come up with to illustrate one of your New Year's Resolutions! Please check out what my team mates have created and make sure you leave them a little blog love then come on back and play along with us....remember, you could win a prize! I can't wait to see the gallery this week with everyone's resolutions! I am so glad you were able to stop by...I hope you have a great week! :)
