Week 335: EARTH

We're bringing things back to earth this week!  With spring approaching in some areas of the world, this cue should be rather appropriate!  There's always room for lots of interpretation, however, so let's see what this word makes you think of!

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 take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
