Addicted to CAS ~ Challenge #243

For me, there is nothing better than listening to great music and playing with paper, ink, glue. I find there is something so soothing about getting lost in my paper-crafting. I especially love the clean and simple look to cards. Simplicity - I like that! If you're like me, we have a new challenge at Addicted to CAS for you. For the next fortnight, our challenge is

Here's my card

I chose circles as my "shape". I used one of Simon Says STAMP's Simple Patterns Trio stencils. When you see certain colors, do they remind you of someone? I know that these colors I used on my card, distress inks - abandoned coral, festive berries, picked raspberry remind me of my favorite Aunt, Florence. She loved bright colors, especially in the pink/red family. I added these distress inks with oval ink blending brushes. I stamped the sentiment using Simon Says STAMP's Happy stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I realized after I finished my card, that this could have been a one-layer card if I had started on a white A2 card base. Instead, I started with a white A2 panel, which in my case, I adhered to a white A2 card base with double-sided tape. 

What shape will you incorporate onto your clean and simple card? We'd love to see your creations in our gallery.
