MFP #46 Challenge

I've been trying to play in some challenges again this week....time is the one thing that keeps holding me back...but for this challenge over at MFP I felt I had a good idea for a card.  

CHALLENGE:  This week Susan is challenging us to use lime, green and gray and have up to one layer.  This is your perfect chance to try CAS card.  They really are fun to make!

There seems to be a lot of the color "green" being used this week...if you look back at some of my posts for challenges or blog hops, you'll see what I'm talking about.  What's up?  Blarney!!!!

This IS a challenge because CAS is sometimes difficult, especially for me.  I love this new stamp set I bought from MFP called "Big Cats" and I thought I'd give the challenge a try using it.  

I don't want to tell you how many times I attempted this card.  (Note to self.....simple isn't always easy) and I'm not sure this is exactly what was in my mind's eye, but once I got this card without smudges and strange angles, I let out a big sigh of relief. 

Card Stock:  Gina K Pure Luxury White 
Stamp Set:  "Big Cats" by Mark's Finest Papers
Ink:  Vivid "Pear Tart" and "Cobblestone"

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic week!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to all you Green Irish out there.

Oh, CAS has always been a challenge for me, it is my resolution for this year :) You made one beautiful card so if it is a challenge, it doesn't show.
