Sketch Saturday - Sketch #358

Our Sketch Saturday teamie, Niki, is sponsoring the challenge this week with a lovely prize.  We were free to use our own images for this challenge and Deb's sketch whispered, "Go CAS," to me.   I needed to make a couple of baby cards, so I went to PTI's Text Block Baby die.  I mounted the die cut to a the patterned paper, so I could pop it out over the lace.  I used Wink of Stella over the die for a little subtle shimmer on the white.

CAS cards are truly a challenge for me.  My style is clean-lined but not necessarily simple.  True to form, I wanted to add other things to this card and came back to it a few times.  Each time, I could hear my friend Maura's voice say, "Step away from the card!"  She started friendly, and gradually got more firm!!

I'd love some feedback, especially if your style is CAS.  Is there something I can do to make this one of those, "Wow!" CAS cards?

Come and play along with us at Sketch Saturday this week.  Take a peek at the other DT cards here!
