A CAS Challenge Card

I made this card for the CAS (clean and simple) challenge at Split Coast Stampers. This is a new weekly challenge and I decided to play along this week, even though this style is so difficult for me.

This week the challenge was to use one button on your project. I used an image from Sledding Fun from Treehouse Stamps.

I colored the image with Copic markers and then added a few highlights with my white Sakura gel pen. I backed that layer with a piece of black cardstock. My card base is Pure Luxury base weight white from Gina K.

I used my Scor-Pal to add some scor lines. Please don't pay attention to the fact that they are crooked. Eek, I almost didn't post this card, there are so many mistakes on it. I love CAS cards when other people do them, but when I do, I am never satisfied with the results.

I want to direct you to Gina K's blog today for a teaser about the exciting new "thing" coming later this week and a chance to win some fantastic blog candy! You don't want to miss this.

What a fun card! He's so cute. And the scored lines just really add that little extra to it. They aren't necessarily "visible", but they are part of the card, and they work wonderfully!
