CAS-ual Friday Challenge 60

I'm learning a lot with this 100 cards challenge!  Inspiration can be elusive, and challenges can really help with that.  I don't think I ever fully understood that before - I thought a challenge, a "must do that this way" would do the absolute opposite of creative inspiration, which just goes to show what I know.  I've found out I love 'em - I just don't always make the deadline.  

One place I always check out is the CAS-ual Friday challenge blog.  There are some jaw dropping creations over there, people!  Go  play along.  I finally found the time to post the card I made before the next challenge posted.  I may now have to go lay down in a darkened room to recover from the shock of it all.

I find challeges a help because the get me out out ruts and have me thinkind of designs I might otherwise not have considered.

I love your card (!!!) and as much as I also love playing with pretty paper, I'm don't tend to use many embellishments, so I'm starting to think I'm more of a CAS girl. Which makes sense since I also get hives from clutter. lol.

Thanks for the inspiration for the 100 cards (I'm currently still behind, but just did #37), and always link to your blog from mine when I count my cards. ;)

This is great!! So many Christmas in July cards. I haven't been as diligent at making sure my stash is ready for the season. Soon, I guess.
