Week 297: ACTIVE

This week's cue word will get you going!  Jump to it and get those creative juices flowing!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Uniko Studio is returning as our wonderful sponsor and this week's winner will receive an in stock stamp set of his/her choice from the online store!

Let's see what the design team and guest designer created for inspiration!
