This card is for a couple of different challenges going on this week.  At Stampin’ Sisters in Christ the challenge was to make a CAS (Clean and Simple) card.  So I went to the Clean & Simple Stamping Blog, which is a wonderful resource for a great CAS design, to check out their weekly sketch.  Well I {loved} it!  So I played along.  Here it is.

There’s still a week left to play along in my sketch challenge.  If you haven’t seen it, check it out HERE.  In conjunction with the challenge, I’m giving away a sweet brand new set by Stampin’ Up called “Hoop-La-La.”  So cute!

Thanks for dropping by today.
Happy Crafting!
