by Karen @ carefree creations - Hello

One of my nieces started at college this past week – away from family. I thought I’d send her a card to let her know we’re thinking of her.

I picked up the latest Addicted to CAS challenge, whose theme is music. My niece is attending an arts college on a piano scholarship, so this challenge totally fit!

For the layout, I found a great sketch at Retro Sketches. I will say that I started off with loads of layers and pattern paper, and while it did look good, I was travelling far from my CAS comfort zone. I backed off and I’m really happy with how this turned out – all with stamping!

Finally, choosing the colors I worked with the CAS-ual Friday challenge which is to use kraft and text/type.

Thanks for taking a peek!
