This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge was "It's easy as 1-2-3"...1. A pattern 2. An image 3. A sentiment

I'm working on the skill of pulling together a CAS card in a short time (I'm usually not a very fast card maker) and I was able to do this one in less than half and hour! I'm very happy and will continue my clean & simple card making skill building. :)

I took off from the following sketch from the Clean & Simple Sketches blog:

My pattern is the polka dots, image is the stars (don't know if this is cheating a little bit, as it's not exactly a stamped image), and of course I have the sentiment front & center (I put it in a little different place than the sketch suggested) I like the result, clean & simple! :)


That's all for today, folks! Thanks to anyone who visits and are much appreciated!

Cardstock: Dark Chocolate (PTI); Sunset Rose swiss dots (Bazzill)
Patterned Paper: Chocolate Chip & Crumb Cake from DSP Patterns Stack (SU)
