So, I’m trying a new card challenge from CASology. CAS = Clean and Simple. Each week, CASologists (I think that I made that word up?) study clean and simple design using a cue word as our inspiration.

Learn more at Casology’s site.

This week’s challenge:

Week 37: HOPE 

From Caslogy’s Design Team, “Hopeful. That’s what spring makes us feel! Is there anything more refreshing than that kind of feeling? A new start. A clean slate. A sunny outlook. What does HOPE mean to you?”

I am also going to submit this card in the Papercraft Star’s Challenge 138 – Easter. (This is my second card entry in this challenge.)

I really like this cue word from CASology. HOPE. And I am very excited about my card!

Here it is:

This CAS design style was a challenge for me, but I liked the challenge. I think I might try this again!

HOPE!? What does hope mean to YOU? Until next time. XOXO

    Melissa, I am SO glad you joined in the fun at CASology…you definitely understand what CAS means based on this gorgeous CAS card! I love that beautiful cross and the pearl accents…the dry embossing perfectly frames the cross and the sentimnet could not be more true! Thanks for playing along at CASology this week!
