Would you consider this CAS?

We are having a nice gentle rain this morning.  My DH is dismayed because he had both golf and lawn mowing on his agenda.  I had some weeding on my agenda, so when it stops my job will be much easier.  For now, it can keep raining while I do my blogpost.
Between loads of wash yesterday, I was working on a very special card for my grand-nephew's Confirmation on July 5th.  I decided to use solid papers in white, blues and grays for this card with a CTMH Artiste cricut cut frame around a free digital Bible verse from Word Art Wednesday.

I added some corner accents from the same cricut cartridge to the inside with a computer generated sentiment.  The card base is actually a light gray with a white embossed panel on the front.
I am hoping this qualifies as CAS since I am entering it in the CAS on Sunday Challenge #60 and have followed their color scheme.
I am also going to enter the card in these other challenges:
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #188 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Favorite Technique or Product
(I've used my favorite embossing folder by Stampin Up.)
Fantastic Tuesday Challenge #90 - Anything Goes w/ Twist: Frame
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #141 - For a Man/Boy
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge #141 - Include a Die Cut
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge - Special Occasion

I think the rain has stopped and we now are experiencing the muggies.  I really dislike the muggies!


  1. That is a lovely embossing folder, looks like it would work for so many ideas! Thanks for sharing your card with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  3. This is my favorite kind of CAS, Debi -- really simple design which looks much more complex than it really is. Fantastic embossing and I love the gemstone cross!

  4. Great card!

    Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers and More!

  5. Such a lovely card! Thanks for joining us at CAS on Sunday!

  6. I would consider it CAS, and I will tell you why. My form of CAS is different than another person's form of CAS because we ALL craft differently. So, "toning it down" or going simply has a different starting point for everyone. As a person who likes to put all sorts of things on every card, keeping it simple doesn't come easy for me. So, I think you did a great job. Going CAS is all in how you design, and I think you did a great job. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing your talents with us by playing along this week. I love your art, and SO appreciate you sharing with us. Have a wonderful week,
