Easter Greetings - Magnolia-licious 'CAS'

To enter your name in the draw for my 5th Blogoversary Candy, click HERE.


We're midway in our current 'Clean and Simple' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.   We want to see cards/projects with limited embellishments and decorations--less is more!  Today it's Team B's turn to post our DT cards/projects for your inspiration.  Hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  Don't forget to check out my DT teammates' fabulous projects/cards while you're there.  

CAS is definitely not my style!  I love my embellishments--flowers, diecuts, pearls, etc.  And I must confess that I usually end up adding embellisments to my CAS cards before mailing them off.  I simply can't force myself to send any card of mine so bare...tee hee.

Anyway,  here is my CAS card--simple layout and clean of embellishments.

And you know that I simply can't leave the inside of my card undecorated, so I did worked on it but still keeping it CAS also--we're talking layout here...hee hee.

I admit that both images I used here are not what you call 'simple', but if you replace them with whatever you want, toppers or simply stamped images, then it fits the CAS bill don't you think?...ha ha

I did some masking to create the scene on the front of my card.  The two Magnolia images I used here are:

- Tilda With Her Rabbit from the Special Moments Collection 2013
- Tilda's Heart Flowers from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012

And for the inside of the card, I drew a Zentangle egg below this Tilda image.  (Oh, the Tilda's Heart Flowers image above have been tangled also.)

- Frizzy Tilda from the Sea Breeze Collection 2013

You can find the three stamps I used on this card at Magnolia-licious on-line store, where you can also find other equally adorable Magnolia images--both full size and mini.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and CandibeansMagnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey.

WOW!!! Norma this is awesome. I love CAS because the image becomes the star. Your Zentangle is so pretty, perfect shapes and you achieved sheer perfection with the shading. You showed me flowers I want to show you more Tangles. Must plan a day together. Hugs, Diana

For those who may have not heard of Zentangle, the Tangles Norma drew are Phuds and Tipple.
