Week 247: FLOW


We're going with the flow this week and this cue word leaves things wide open for interpretation!

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!) 

Altenew is returning as our wonderful sponsor this week and is offering this week's winner a $20 gift certificate to their online store!  Have you checked out their May Inspiration Challenge yet?  The inspiration photo is absolutely gorgeous!

Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!

Confining design elements to one third of the card front is a classic CAS technique.
