CAS Week at I ♥ Promarkers!

Todays new challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers is 'Clean and Simple'. Eeeek! ;)  Most people would only need to glance at my blog to see its not a style I am accustomed to, or sits favourably with me.  (I confess to actually avoiding the genre at all costs!) lol. :)

I do however see some very beautiful CAS projects when I am blog-hopping and commenting, and have a lot of admiration for the crafters who really excel at this.  I also feel its perfectly suited to certain cards that are also very difficult to make and give for the obvious reasons. 

We are sponsored this week by the uber-generous Joanna Sheen who is giving the winner a £10 voucher to spend at her online store :)  This is a smashing prize, as I visit her site regularly and there are always some wonderful goodies to look at.

This really was a quick and simple card for me, using just black and white bazzil card, black peel offs, gems and ribbon and light colouring with Ice Grey PM's 1 - 4.

I am entering my card in the below competitions:

Do You Stack Up - Squares
Bling it On - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenges - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, and I hope you find time to look at all the other stunning work by the DT.
