CASology #87




Welcome to Week 87 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:



I decided to tackle this week's cue word from two different angles.  I used a blush (or pink) as the dominant colour on my design and I chose an image that can make some people blush!  LOL!  I went for a very classic CAS design that uses the rule of thirds - the main image is in the centre of the top third of the card.  I know for some this may seem boring but CAS design does not involve piling on the glitz and filling every available space.  In order to jazz things up a little bit I colored the heart in the sentiment which also ties it to the image and then I added some tiny bling to the bra for a little sparkle.  Now it's your turn to make us blush!  Be sure to check out the rest of the gorgeous designs from the DT and take a moment to look at what makes them CAS.

     


And this week's guest designer:
