HLS August CAS Challenge

Hey everyone, welcome back to a new challenge! Today is the start of our Clean and Simple Challenge where we are asking to use only one third of your card base to create on. 


This is a really great rule to apply to your CAS cards especially if you are just starting out or aren't perhaps comfortable with CAS designs. The rule is simple - use only one third!

Here are our designers -












1. Your entry MUST comply with CAS rules - Clean and Simple design with one focal point, lots of white (or open) space and minimal layers and embellishments
2. Link back to your blog post and not your entire blog
3. Provide a link back to HLS in your blog post
4. You may enter as many times as you like but each entry must be different.
5. You may enter as many other challenges as you like
6. Have fun!
