A Couple of CASes

I don't know why I got into the Clean and Simple challenges.  I'm not really that kind of card maker but they just draw me in and I HAVE to make cards for them.  Today is the deadline for two challenges so I'm posting two cards.  I wish I could have combined them but that would have been difficult since one is a sketch.

My first card is for CAS(E) this sketch.

 I tried several other things for the three elements but once I decided on the sentiment that I printed on the computer, these arrows from Accent Essentials seemed the perfect choice.

The second challenge is for CASE Study #142.  Here is the photo inspiration:

And my card.

The vine is cut from Cindy Loo and the flower from some Recollections paper.  I cut three images and put foam tape between two of them, curling up the petals a little.  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper.  This paper stack had several pages of large image flowers.  This is the second one I have cut and layered like this.

It's going to be raining all day and tomorrow.  That means some time in my craft room after taking care of some business.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

Love your cards Bobby. Those teeny-tiny polka dots are perfect, and I love the curvy arrows-perfect sentiment too. And your CASe study card is soft and sweetly understated--in my world, it's beautifully CAS and I like it very much. Bev

Great cards! The second one is just lovely. I really like your treatment of the flower.

I see why you needed to make two cards, and I am sure glad you did. They are both wonderful in their own way. The first card put a big grin on my face--love those squiggly arrows, and the second card is just gorgeous.

You did a wonderful job with both these cards/challenges, Bobby! Your bloom is so wonderfully colored and dimensional and the arrows for that sediment were the only possible design choice!!
