How CAS can you go?...

Now you know I like my CAS cards - as well as all the other styles I play with - but this one is a bit extreme even for me...


This is for my Auntie's anniversary... I wouldn't consider giving a card this CAS to anyone else I don't think, but Di buys lots of her cards from me and always goes for the most minimal ones I show her.  I know she'll like this, just as I know my mum would be very unimpressed with it lol!

It's also for this week's Less Is More challenge, which is a one-layer card with 3 of something - I have 3 hearts and also 3 colours (red, black, kraft).  The heart stamp and sentiment are Stampin' Up and I added a bit of bling on the red heart... and that's it... eek!

** Also, just a quick mention - there's a digi stamp give-away on The Stamp Basket blog, but it's only until 8pm this evening, so have a look at this post for all the details **

Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
