ATCAS #32 - Coffee and CAS(E) This Sketch


Welcome to a new ATCAS challenge!  Our fabulous hostess is Deepti and she selected the code word: COFFEE for this challenge:

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps:



We also have a guest designer this month: Anni.  So please check out the ATCAS challenge blog to see all of the designers' cards for lots of inspiration!

I was stuck for an idea for this challenge until I saw the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:


I started out with the cup of coffee and the sentiment from a PaperTrey set on an A2 size card but it looked too blah and empty (I know, usually I am a minimalist...).  So I added the PaperTrey square frame and the rest of the sentiment and cut off the bottom to make this a 4.25" square card.  It still looks a bit bare but better than the original!

Thanks for coming by!

I like the CAS look and bare it is not! The added frame was a perfect finishing touch

Great card Harriet. Love the CAS style and how the frame is broken up by the sentiment.
