Week 372: BALL

August has arrived!  Having a ball...or playing ball...or going to the ball...you can interpret this simple word in whatever way it appeals to you!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

One main image

Lots of open space, uncluttered

Limited layers & embellishments

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!  Check out these deals this month:
