Saturday Spotlight #20: Clean It Up!

Digi stamp and sentiment by Whimsie Doodles 'Leah Bunny on Easter Basket' and 'Hoppy Easter'. Ink: Copics. Cardstock: Baja Breeze, DCWV 'Glitter Sweet Matstack', GP 110 white. Accessories: Rectangle and tag Nestabilities, SU button, Stardust glitter pen.

For this week's 'Clean It Up' challenge.....

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to go the opposite from last week's challenge and clean things up a bit on your creations! What does that mean? You can make a nice CAS style card (meaning 'clean & simple' style), or make sure you have clean edges and paper for your creation. Please interpret this how you'd like!

For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...
(click HERE to go to store.)

CAS is one of my all-time favorite card styles. Trying new embellies or techniques is fun, but to really emphasize an adorable image like this one, nothing beats clean and simple! This Fall-To sketch #79 is courtesy of my favorite CAS inspiration blog, aptly named Clean & Simple Stamping.

Does this image remind anyone else of 'A Christmas Story'? The hilarious scene from that movie must have been in my subconscious as I was coloring this little bunny.

Be sure to check out all the 'clean' creations by the Spotlight Divas:
