Papertrey's CMWC #44

So, is it clean and simple or not?!? The challenge this week on the Papertrey Forum was to make a CAS card, all one layer with one embellishment. I started out thinking duck and sentiment. The sentiment was great but the duck was lonely, so then I thought maybe 3 ducks, but the background was bare so I masked the ducks and the sentiment and added the background, but then I messed up one of the squares so I had to add the ribbon, then it was lop-sided so I added another knot on the other side, and VOILA! Not so CAS, silly! Hey! It is one layer and one embellishment!

lol lol, maybe I will go back to square one and remake the lonely duck!

Bitty Baby Blessings gave us the sentiment and ducks, of course. The ovals are from Borders and Corners Ovals, and the background square is from Guidelines, but the little polka dotty thing is a flower center from Beautiful Blooms. Inks were Beaux Arts blue, Ocean Tides and Seascape, along with Versafine Onyx Black. The ducks are colored with Prisma marker Deco Yellow, but the beaks are SU's Pumpkin Pie marker.

I really LIKE the background--reminds be of Delftware tiles or something similar.
Let's face it, sometimes OUR plans are not meant to work out our way; theses projects take on a life of their own and EVOLVE in their own fashion!
