    CAS Watercolour November's Top Picks

    November's gallery was filled with beautiful Christmas Florals and Greenery!
    Thanks to all that played along!

    Our Top Pick for November
    Janet (Swanlady Impressions)
    The entire Design Team loved Janet's card. Gold heat embossing and a brown wash set off the poinsettias beautifully. The red and gold strips frame one edge of the poinsettias, and anchor the gold cord and red beads (such a wonderful way to add embellishmentrs). The dry embossed kraft panel adds interest but still keeps the card CAS.

    Congratulations, Janet!
    Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.




    And some more Outstanding Designs

        CAS Watercolour October's Top Picks

        What a wonderful gallery full of fall watercolours!  It was really hard to pick our winner and Outstanding Designs.  I wish we could pick them all!

        Thanks so much for helping us celebrate our 2nd Birthday!


        Our Top Pick for October
        Michele (I Card Everyone)

        Michele's beautiful orange and green is certainly worthy of a 2nd Birthday Celebration! The shading of the leaves and petals are perfect and the white embossed edges outlines the colors beautifully! The brown splatters finish off this colour trio perfectly!
