Week 321: GLASS

Happy new challenge week!  It's clear this week's gallery will be an interesting one!  So many possibilities come to mind!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
