Creative Knockouts #106: CAS

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start!  This morning I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#106) where the challenge is....ANYTHING GOES!  Woohoo! This week's sponsor is A Day For Daisies (one of my most favorite sponsors, as you know!!), and oh yes...a prize! 
Here is my card using this wonderful image Walk On The Beach. It SO reminds me of myself with my two guys :)



 
I wanted to play along with the challenge at A Day For Daisies with this project. Their challenge was to incorporate plaid into your card. NOW, you can't see it very well since I was a bit too enthusiastic with the glittery wash sprays....but the background of this CAS card has been stamped with an old background stamp from Stampin' Up! called "Flannel Plaid" using a light blue ink. It was a bit too stark with just that background stamp so I roughed it up, distressed the edges and sprayed some Perfect Pearls sprays all over it. In person you can still see the flannel but the photo was not wanting to see it. I have a closer up one where you can see it a bit better in the blue. It's subtle, but I'm glad I played around with this challenge! Very fun :)



You can barely see it in this second photo but I added the touch of wispy clouds using a cloud template, sponge, and white ink. Again, you can see it better in person. This card really didn't want to pose for the camera!


Image is colored with Copics. Brad is from Kaisercraft. Flag die from Verve. Pierced oval die from MFT. Clean and Simple is really hard for me. I always get itchy fingers like it's not ENOUGH. Even though I really love all the CAS creations that OTHER people make! I worked really had to keep it simple and let the image do the talking. It's such a sweet one and with fall coming in here I love looking at it!

Here's the challenge board for Crafty Gals Corner:
