*click on any pictures if you wish to enlarge*

Hello Friends and Followers....
It's past 2:00 am here and sleeps is eluding me...yet again....*sigh* so I decided to add the latest cards  I made for this mont's Sisterhood of the Travelling Cards.
**Note,if you are looking for the Calendar Girls post for the month, please find it previous to this one...thanks! **
Soooo, maybe some are not aware what a CAS card is. It means a Clean And Simple type of cards with hardly any embellishments or layers. SIMPLE being the operative word here.

In Gael's words here below:
This Month's Theme was hosted by Gael (aka mamadwawa on SCS)
In honor of simplifying---August's theme is Clean and Simple
More specifically, no more than two layers (card base is considered a layer) and no more than 2 embellishments (one if it is a large one); not two types of embellies, but two embellies ....

Card Deets:
Stamp:SU 'Botanical'-2002 ; sentiment is from Paper Salon
Ink:River rock (steepling),Cranberry crisp, 5 markers:More Mustard,Old Olive,Always Artichokes,So Saffron, Real Red,Bravo Burgundy
Card Stock: SU Bravo Burgundy,Very Vanilla
Accessories: oval nestie,scorepal,mini-pearls
Steepling ,coloring drect on rubber stamps,using markers.

SEE?..What did I tell ya?
Clean and Simple it is! Hope U enjoyed it and pleezzzz come again!!:o)
I think I'm off to bed now...sleep has FINALLY decided not to keep ya awake :o)

Have a great Night ya all!!

I adore this!! Makes me want to redo mine. I have always thought I was a CAS kind of girl, but it was harder than I thought.

You rocked this challenge with such a beautiful result!!
