Marshmallows and Coffee, 7 Kids College Fund challenge #135

I have come to one conclusion about these CAS cards.  There is nothing simple about making them!  When I am pressed for time I always think CAS is a good way to go.  When will I learn?! They take me at least twice as long as the fussy cards I normally do! I'm convinced there is a secret magical art to making these cards and I haven't been let in on the secret.

Anyways.... A new challenge started on the 7 Kids Challenge blog yesterday.  This challenge and all the rest through the end of the year will have a theme of Anything Goes! 

My clean and not so simple card uses Whimsy Stamp's Marshmallows and Coffee, a Time for Tea Designs image.  I stamped her Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics.  Here are the combos I used: 
skin: E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11
hair: E35 E33 E53 E51
jacket: E44 E43 E42 E41
scarf and hat: E09 YR27 YR24 YR21
shoes: E77 E74 E71 E70

  5. I find CAS quite difficult too and like you I think I can probably make one of my normal style embellished cards in less time than it takes me to make a 'simple' one lol. This is lovely though and the 2 little autumn leaves are the perfect finishing touch :) xx
