CAS according to me .......

Hi everyone !!! 

I am stopping by to share this card , well cards I made . 
They are supposed to be Clean and Simple , but as many of you know by my projects ~ I somehow don't know how to do CAS. I really , truly start off thinking ... this is IT, this card is going to be nice , clean and easy to make . NOPE .... not with me , somewhere along the creative process I add a bit too much !!! I don't even realize it until the end !!! So , to make things clear I am really not good with CAS cards , I would love to be as I am inspired by so many that are created by all the talented designers !!!! These cards are the best so far for me as far as being CAS . I am not giving up , they say practice makes perfect .... wish me luck !!!! 

I was inspired by two challenges going on right now ( I had to stop myself from making another shaker card ,for now , don't worry more of those are on their way). Back to the challenges I was inspired by , first one is Hero Arts . The challenge is to use anything Nature related on your project and it must include at least one Hero Arts stamp or digital image . 

The second challenge 
I was inspired by 
CAS(E) Sketch #109 

Once again I have to say I really tried to stick to the sketch . 
I really love the design !!! 

I used several Hero Arts stamp sets and inks to create these cards . 
I also used the new Heidi Swapp "happy" die cut word . 
I added glossy accents to the word to give it a bit more dimension.
