Perfectly CAS Challenge #1

There's a new card challenge in town called Perfectly CAS and I love the concept.  The challenge is to design a card using only up only 1/3 of the card front, leaving lots of nice empty white space.  (Although white space doesn't necessarily have to be white.)  I love this look but rarely think to create this way so I'm looking forward to all of the challenges ahead. 

The theme for this first challenge is flowers. 

True confession.  I don't make floral cards all that often.  Why?  Because the coloring intimidates the heck out of me.  I have been wanting to take a class at Kit and Clowder but I never seem to make the time. I need to do that but for now, here's my card.  

I decided to use the top 1/3 of my card as the focal point.  Both the image and the sentiment are some of my most often used favorites from Altenew.  I added a bit of sparkle using a gel pen to create the little dots around the floral image.

Sweet and simple and I'm excited to play along.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see you on the crafty side!



  1. This is so pretty! Despite my CAS tendencies, using just one-third of the card front (let alone just one layer?) is really tough for me. But this is beautiful!

  2. Jules, don't let that coloring hold you back - you've done beautifully! How will we get any better if we don't practice?

  3. Loving all the white space! This is a perfect CAS card and I think your colouring/shading is well done. Thanks for joining us at Perfectly CAS.

  4. I'm with you in finding colouring florals a challenge...yet I have sooooo many flower sets! Silliness! Give me layered ones to ink, though, and that I can do!
    Your colouring here: spot-on gorgeous! Love the blue; love the 'at the top' design! Thrilled to see you at the first Perfectly CAS challenge (and hopefully in those to come!)
