Be Bold - Be CAS!

Hi and Happy Saturday! I have a CAS (Clean and Simple) card to share with you today.  Sometimes I feel like I can't do CAS - like the card is just too boring or needs more.  But then I have to remind myself that sometimes less is more and CAS doesn't mean boring!!!

For my card today, I used the same paper, but I started with the front and then flipped to the back.  The papers are from Echo Park's So Happy Together, which was part of the SP & Company Monthly Kit last month!

See how the card is very simple but still creates interest? I cut the papers to two different sizes and wrapped twine around the lower right.  I also punched out a butterfly and pulled the wings up.

The banner was created using the new Swirly Doos set! L-O-V-E.  This sentiment is perfect for this card - clean and bold!

So, what do you think? Really, don't be afraid to go simple sometimes.  I can't say that this card took me less time than a non-CAS (even though it should have, right?!?!), but I really love the end result.
