PP451 Masculine Clean and Simple

Hi everyone!  Sunday brings another Paper Players challenge...good thing it was a clean and simple one, my weekend has been a busy one, so it was perfect!  Ann is our hostess, and here's what she chose:

There was a super-fabby sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch this week, too; I flipped it to make it work better with my image:

And here we go:

I gave lots of stamps some love and ink on this one!!  My Chevy image (Unity) was stamped in Poppy Parade; the background (Gorgeous Grunge) was stamped repeatedly in Smoky Slate, and my sentiment (Hero Arts) was stamped in Memento Black.  I actually stamped the car image twice, once in Poppy and again in Slate and fussy cut them out, popping up the top one:

I used some scraps of Poppy Parade DSP for my vertical stripes, and some new CTMH sentiment for the inside; we have a friend who was just blindsided with a diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and has been in the hospital for about three weeks, so this is for him.

Remember, for our CAS challenges, less is better!  Simple images and lots of white space really make your CAS creation pop!  If you need a refresher on the CAS style, pop over to the Paper Players website! Meanwhile, you can check out what the DT made!  Hope to see you there!

Cooling off on a ride high in the sky!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

A great CAS card LeAnne - love that pop of bright red, so cheery for your friend to receive. A great stamp combo too to create your card. Love that we used the same sketch and even the same DSP, yet our cards couldn’t be more different! You nailed the CAS this week my friend!

LeAnne, I love this red chevy! My Daddy had a car like this only not red. LOL! Love the argyle strips and the gray grunge. You certainly rocked this challenge and the sketch! I know several guys that would adore this card. Have a great rest of the week, My Friend! XX

LeAnne, your card will certainly brighten up your friend's day, and will let him know he is in your thoughts. I love the Poppy Parade color, and how you paired it up with Smoky Slate. A perfect clean and simple masculine card for sure!
