CAS-ual Blessings

CAS-ual Friday

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge had a Fall theme, so I decided to give it a go as you all know how much I love fall colours and using my beloved leaf dies.

However, the CAS side gave me quite the challenge!  Let me tell you, CAS is not an easy style to pull off!!  The tiniest shift in image size, angle, arrangement etc. can make all the difference in the world.  I  fought with this card forever, and finally gave up and kept what I had just so I could get it done before the challenge deadline LOL!  Let's just say CAS 1:  Marisa 0.   Will definitely have to study the blogs of the "CAS pros" so I can learn a few things for next time!

Have a blessed day!



What's In It? 
Stamps: Leaf Prints (PTI), Wishing You (Verve) 
Paper:  Kraft, So Saffron, Cameo Coral, Cream Linen 
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Black

Very pretty CAS card, Marisa. I like the buttons and the pretty pearls. Who couldn't love those leaf dies?

I'm waiting for the leaves to start turning here...be a bit but I'm beginning to see signs.
