The Unkown Always Passes For The Marvelous

Today's clean and simple card was created for the latest Addicted To CAS card challenge. Those who know me know that I struggle with CAS cards. I love layers and patterned papers and dies so I really have to reign it in to do these cards. But the Unity Stamp Company's Other Side Of Fear stamp set really lends itself to a clean and simple card. The images are so striking and so beautiful that they really don't need much else. So, when I saw this latest challenge I knew I had to break that stamp set out and get it inky. I colored it using my Copic markers and die cut the image down using a stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I popped it up off of the card using 3M foam tape and this card was done! I hope you like it!

Looks great how you made a blue line that your eyes want to follow over your card! And a great sentiment!

Such a gorgeous and meaningful CAS card Celeste. Love the image of the whale and how you surrounded it with the blue rather than saturating it in colour. Beautiful.

Celeste, I had a nice scroll-through visit today. This card stopped me in my tracks. CAS is not easy for me, either. You did such a beautiful job. Oh, how I love the whale with its pretty pattern, and your design, the sentiment, the whole feel of it. Absolutely wonderful!
