Challenge #413 - More (but still CAS)

Hey LIMettes!

Well, we just had to continue our 'Less is More' themes this month and as we tackled 'Less' last time, we are back with our latest challenge which is 'More (but still CAS)'




The idea behind this challenge is to use lots of small images or shapes or words/sentiments but at the same time keeping the card as CAS as possible. How many small images/shapes can you incorporate into your CAS design? For example, tiny flowers, stars, snowflakes etc. We look forward to seeing what you use.

**********************************************************

To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages.Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

Challenge 412 - Less (tiny and few)

Hey LIMettes!

Oh My Goodness!!! Can you believe that our little challenge is 9 years old this month? For a change we are having a quiet celebration this year, because next year should be a really, really big one! But it wouldn't be right to just let the month roll by this year without a little mention, would it?




Anyway, we're back with the first challenge of the month and it is a theme of LESS, which is the ethos of our little challenge.




So we are challenging you to think about how small you can go with your images and sentiments, and how few you can use too!


As it is a new month, we have a change of sponsorship and it just so happens that this month's sponsor is also celebrating their birthday. So please hop along and see the celebrations over at their blog too.
