are not my forte. And, I don't do cute very well either. But, I wanted to play in a couple of challenges so I tried combining the two:
I used Simon's You Are Pawsome set and Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies set for this card. The dog was colored with Prismacolor pencils. I sponged some distress inks for the background and added a hand-drawn border. I am not so sure this is CAS enough for the challenge, but the powers that be can be the judge. :*)
Simon Says Stamp Flickr group: one layer card.
Less is More: clean and simple with an animal.
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: animals.
Have a wonderful day.
