CASology Week #328...Smile

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is SMILE.  I looked through my stamps and found a sentiment I had totally forgotten about that is perfect for a card to send to a friend, just because.  Another interpretation that I didn't think of until I had already made my card would be to make a card featuring anything that makes you smile (puppies, chocolate, hugs, you get the drift).

I stamped my sentiment in the lower right corner of the card, die cut a leafy branch (PTI Turning a New Leaf) and then built it back up with layers of matching green card stock.  It's been a while since I used the inlaid die technique, and this was a reminder to me of how fun the process is and how much I like the final product.

Now it's your turn.  How does SMILE inspire you?

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

I hope you play along this week.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the our Guest Designer Monika R. and the CASology design team.

Thanks for Visiting
