Double Color Challenge


Double Color Challenge

Christian Paper Crafts
&
SCS Clean & Simple

I don't usually use this many layers on a CAS card. Thankfully, it still looks clean and simple and is without many embellishments. I didn't intend to get carried away with the layers. It all started when I couldn't decide on which kraft dsp to use. I finally decided that they looked good together. I needed some turquoise since it was part of the challenge. Without even thinking about CAS, I decided that it just looked too dull without highlighting both patterns. It wasn't until it was put together that I realized what I had done! LOL! Thankfully, CAS is a subjective term and there is no right answer or exact definition to explain it.

These colors make me think of enjoying the view of the sea while sitting on the beach. It's a gift from God... His creation... that can calm me with the sights and sounds.

You were so right! Both kraft dsp look just great together! I really like the look! And, it isn't too busy to be a CAS card. But that is really up to the eye of the "poster" isn't it?

I love the sentiment. Very nicely done. Thank you for sharing!
