March CAS Winners & April CAS Reminder #1

Hi everyone.  I'm back with a reminder that the April CAS Challenge at HLS is Stenciling. There are lots of great ways to add stenciling to your cards and we hope you'll play along.

At Happy Little Stampers, CAS  (clean and simple) is defined as:

- one main focal point
- lots of white or open (no pattern) space
- minimal layers
- minimal embellishments

Before we get to the sample cards for this week, I want to again thank everyone that entered the March CAS Sponging challenge at HLS.  There were a tremendous amount of beautiful entries into the gallery.  Again, it was a tough job to narrow down to just a few favourites, but here are the outstanding sponged cards ...


(in numerical order)

Congrats to all the winners.  Make sure you grab your badge!! :)  Thanks to everyone who shared with HLS.

Here are the CAS Stenciled cards for this week.
