Week 360: CRYSTAL

Here we are at the beginning of another new challenge!  This next one should make for a rather pretty gallery!  Let's see what you come up with!

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!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!

Be sure and check out their current sale!

Let's see what the design team and our guest designer created for inspiration to get us started!

Danielle's single coloured mug popping out of the group caught my eye immediately.  The white on white framing keeps things CAS and draws your eye right to that coloured focal point.

Congratulations, Danielle!
