613 Avenue Create - Design A CAS Project

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
This is a very short post!  Over at 613 Avenue Create, we are asking that you design and submit a CAS project.  This can be a card, a tag, 3D, Up cycle, etc.  I suck at CAS, but have decided to try and create at least one CAS project each month.  That should improve my skill level in this genre!

I am beginning to love CAS because I see so many cards with so much stuff stuck on them, but the designs are not cohesive, they do not tell a story.  Clean and Simple design requires a lot of thought because you must communicate your entire message with minimal embellishment.
The Hubster says I should employ CAS when explaining to him why I need every stencil and embossing folder on the planet! 

 I used Tim Holtz's Botanical Rub Ons for the foliage and sentiment.
The papers are from the Teresa Collins Daily Stories Collection
I don't usually design the inside of my projects, but this gave me another opportunity to come up with an effective clean and simple design.  The "Today" sticker is from the Carpe Diem Snap Planner Collection.    One of the goals of CAS design, is that the design should be easy to replicate.  Using stickers and rub ons make creating multiple cards of the same design a breeze.

Thanks for Stopping By!
