I actually did a one layer card





Although I am a lover of CAS I find it hard to do one layer cards. I always feel the need to paper-piece to add some dimension, so me just say that this card took me out of my comfort zone. I may start doing some one layer cards from now on.

For this card I used the digital images from Collective Creation, Etsy, I absolutely love this etsy shop and I encourage you to check it out. I placed the cats on the edge of the card to allow for the tails to go over the edge. I love the over the edge technique and use it in my cards often to give the idea of movement. The sentiment has been  done in Zapfino Linotype One font.

Addicted to CAS-Off the edge
Created with love challenges-For the love of critters
Cute Card Thursday-Paw pals
CAS-ual Fridays-Three thirds

I am also the guest designer this month at Tuesday Throwdown,  check out their current Spring Blossoms challenge here, you have until the 20th of May to enter. Below is my card for this challenge, I absolutely loved the digital image I got to use.



Thanks so much for visiting and hope you will be back soon :)

This is so adorable! I love those kitties - so neat how the tails go off the edge - love it! I find one-layer cards the most difficult and I've only ever done a few. I really should challenge myself to try them more often.
