You Are Awesome - CAS

9/11/2017 Update: Splitcoast Stampers CAS Favorite of the week ending 9/10/2017.

CAS cards have been catching more attention from me and I have been participating in more CAS challenges. I'm still learning when enough is enough and sometimes it's difficult not to add more. The colors on this card are supposed to be ROYAL BLUE & LIME GREEN. I substituted a different shade of blue because I don't have any royal blue ink - not a drop!
On a white card base, a circular stamp was masked and inked with lime green ink and then again with blue ink. The sentiment was stamped across the image in keeping with the sketch.
The right edge was die cut with a row of little circles as a complement to the tiny dots of the stamped image. The inside of the card was decorated with a strip of green cardstock using the same die but placed so that the green cardstock shows through the little holes.

The card is being submitted to:
