Watercooler Wednesday WWC64 - Heidi's CAS to Celebrate Spring Challenge

What is clean and simple?  According to the challenges which host only CAS (clean and simple), this is what one aims to do:  CAS (acronym for "clean and simple":  A design of card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments, most often single layered or minimal layers.

My inspiration comes from Leanne Johnson.  I know dandelions are a nuisance and a lot of people do not like them, but just think all those bears coming out of hibernation, they love to eat them.  I am not saying you want to see a Bear on your front lawn, but there are some good things about dandelions.  I loved Leanne's card and I just love those little stamps from the "Balloon Celebration" stamp set.  Who knew they could make fabulous designs on cards!

  5. What a sweetly done card Heather! Thank you for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday this week. Hope to see you soon!

  6. Another great thing about dandelions is that they are the 1st 'food' for bees! (besides, of course, the fun they give us in blowing the fluff!) Such a cute card - thanks for joining us in this week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge, Heather. ~Deborah
