Posh has a present

Hi and welcome to a schedule post to tell you about the brand new challenge over at ATSM.
Here is my inspiration card.

This week it is our CAS challenge.

We've had a bit of a discussion behind the scenes about what is a clean and simple card and here are a few guidelines which may help you.

So with my card, one main focal point.
More than half 'white space'.
No embellishments.
With hindsight perhaps I should have done away with the pads but there're only 2 layers!
Hope this helps.

So down to details. I started by stamping my image from Stampingbella and colouring in her with Copics using the colour scheme over at CAS-ual Fridays. Then, using the sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch, I cut away 2/3rds of the card, leaving my image still attached. On a piece of scrap paper I inked through a STAMPlorations stencil with Chipped Sapphire DI to create the stripes. A plain piece of white card completes the layout. As it's a CAS card no further  embellishments were added, save for a stamped blue greeting that I embossed with clear EP.
For more fab inspiration, please check out the rest of the team here.

I'd like to join in over at -

The card by Hannelie really inspired this card
