I made this card a few weeks ago for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use colored cardstock for a CAS (clean and simple) card. I wanted to make a Thank You card for someone so I decided to go very simple and just use embossing. CAS cards are typically the hardest. I made three attempts before coming up with this card because I had a hard time lining everything up evenly. I am very pleased with the results though. I am giving the card away today so I finally photographed it.

I found a website that gives beautiful sketches for clean and simple cards. I find clean and simple cards to look closest to high quality store bought cards and because this is what I am striving for in the cards I sent to Operation Write Home, I thought I would try a few of their sketches. I did not participate in their challenges because these were older sketches.
I used Autumn Leaves-Elegant Flourishes and Fiskars Holiday Frolic (for the snowflakes) plus some blue gems. I framed the design with blue card stock.
