Digi Doodle Shop Challenges #68 – CAS

I'm back!!!!!  This time with my card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges where this week we want to see Clean and Simple. That means nothing fussy or over the top - just a clean. simple design with a fair amount of white space on your card.  I know.........this sounds scary - but believe me when I tell you it is not as bad as you are imagining. Just resist the temptation to add just one more flower or perhaps a little bit more ribbon :0)

For my card, I have used this lovely Ballerina image, simply coloured her with Promarkers and matted her onto three different shades of turquoise card stock.  The sentiment was printed directly onto the card from my computer. This was the trickiest part of making the card as I had to make sure I had it positioned correctly so there was enough room for the image.  

And there you have it - a CAS card which I hope you all like!!  The rest of the wonderful Design Team have made some gorgeous cards to inspire you this week and I hope you will join us for some clean and simple fun !!!!

Once again, thanks for looking.

This is fantastic, beautiful, my printer doesn't like my card so I can't print directly onto it, very frustrating,
