Operation Write Home CAS Blog Skip & Blog Candy!

***Edited to add: CONTEST IS CLOSED. Winner announced in latest post.***

I'm taking part in the OWH Clean & Simple card Blog Skip.
We are giving our take on cards from the Online Card Classes "Clean & Simple" class that some of us took. You can still take it self-paced here:

I used a monochromatic masking technique for my one layer card.

  1. Wonderful card and you masked that sentiment area great- very clean edges. Also, thanks for sharing the link to the CAS class.

  2. Wonderful CAS card! I have a feeling i would ruin a lot of paper before I could mange to mask an area as cleanly as you did here but the effect is great so it could be worth the risk to give this technique a try. Great work, thanks for supporting OWH!
