CASology #120


Welcome to Week 120 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I was excited that this week's word has nothing to do with the current season or holidays (as they already feel like they're taking over my life) but in the end they crept into my card design anyway.  I can never resist a punny sentiment and I wanted to let this adorable octopus finally get inked up.  Initially the card only consisted of the octopus and the speech bubble - the background seemed a little plain.  Then I remembered these Paper Smooches bubbles and added them using VersaMark ink - subtle but they still add some interest without overwhelming the CAS design.  And now it's your turn to show us what the word sea brings to your mind !  Check out the CASology blog for the gorgeous creations from the rest of the design team and then play along!



And this week's guest designer:
