A Clean and Simple Clearly Inspired Challenge! CIC #25

I dont know about you all, but I just cannot believe it is April already! This year is really going by fast! (sigh) Anyway, I do love spring, and I do love the first (and third) fridays of the month because it is time for Clear Dollar Stamps' Clearly Inspired Challenge! This month, my BFF, Cassie has challenged us to create a CAS card. Clean and Simple... sounds much easier than it was for me. I guess that is why its called a 'challenge' hehe.. (eyeroll, l know)

I tend to go overboard with my cards even if it is supposed to be clean and simple, so I added a couple rules on myself to insure it would stay a CAS card... 1) I had to use white ... and 2) I had to stamp directly on the white ie only one layer.
(click above to see entire set)
Cardstock/Papers:Whisper White, Neehan Solar White
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics: YG03, YR04, Y38, RV55, V20, V25
Accents/Tools: Corner Rounder
Techniques: CAS

Now onto the details of the Clearly Inspired Challenge!
Challenges are now going to be on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, and you'll have 2 weeks to finish each challenge.
-Challenges can use any stamps or digis from any company

-Only one entry per person per challenge

-Prizes will be given away after both challenges for the month. The number of prizes is determined by the number of participants for the month. For every 20 entries there will be a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs. (For example if over the entire month there were a total of 60 participants in both challenges, there will be 3 $10 gift certificates and 3 of the featured digital images to give away.)

-We will also be giving away the featured digi for every 20 entries!

Need more inspiration? Go check out Lori's Blog, home of the CIC, that is also where you enter your CAS card! Spread the word! The more entries we have, the more prizes we will be awarding!

Ok, get to work! I cant wait to see what you all create!

Awesome, Christi! CAS aren't always easy, but you nailed it. I love the butterfly popping off the card too! What a great element to add dimension too :D
