Week 366: ZODIAC

This week, we're looking to the sky for design inspiration!  We're curious to see what this cue makes you think of.  Regardless, the gallery should be out of this world!

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!

A 21 Days of Spring celebration is happening right now with lots of prizes and select products 60% off!  Be sure and go check it out!

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