Keep it Simple Sunday

Hello there and Happy Sunday! As I have posted before, one of my goals this year is to make more CAS (clean and simple) cards. So, I wanted to try something new with my blog to ensure I keep to that goal. Every Sunday I'm going to feature one CAS creation, that was made in 30 minutes or less.

I'm calling it:
"Keep it Simple Sunday"

This week's card is based on the *fall to layout #127* over at Clean and Simple Stamping:
I did use a lot more layers then I probably should have for a CAS card, but it still came together in about 20 minutes. THAT is reason to celebrate, in my book! I was really inspired to break in some of the new goodies that were delivered to my door on Friday. Whoo hoo! Don't forget that Sale-A-Bration is going on right now and there are lots of ways to earn FREE SU! product. Click the link above! :)
Anyhoo, there you have it. Keeping it simple on a Sunday. 
I'd love to hear what you think, as CAS cards are something I really struggle with. 
Thanks so much for popping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
