Week 358: BRANCH

Winter, holidays, snowfall, spring...this cue word will likely bring lots of variety to the gallery!

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 25% off sale!  You can find more details on their main page!  Also, this month, mention CASology in the notes when you place an order and receive a mystery gift!  How fun is that?!

Let's see what the design team & our guest designer created for inspiration!
