Week 300: COPPER


It's time to brighten up the gallery this week!  Lots of possibilities with this one, but if even in you go with the obvious, your design is bound to shine!

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!)


STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!  Remember, during the weeks STAMPlorations is sponsoring us, you can refresh your craft stash with the help of the 10% off discount code, CASOLOGY!


Be sure and go check out their Moms, Dads & Grads sale (ends May 21) for special savings on creative supplies for those special people in your lives!


While you're at it, also be sure to check out the Things with Wings Spring Sale  (ends May 30)!
