Challenge #84 - Delicate

Welcome back to Addicted to CAS. We have a brand new challenge starting right NOW. 

I bet you are excited!!!

Your hostess this fortnight is Sweet Kobylkin and here is the code word she would like you to use for your inspiration -

We all know what delicate means but there are a number of ways to interpret this word. I thought you would like to see the meaning of delicate and that would help you to even think outside the box when it come to your creation.

Delicate - Adjective


very fine in texture or structure; of intricate workmanship or quality.
"a delicate lace shawl"

(of colour) subtle and subdued.
"delicate pastel shades"

(of food or drink) subtly and pleasantly flavoured.
"a delicate, sweet flavour"

easily broken or damaged; fragile.
"delicate china"

susceptible to illness or adverse conditions.
"his delicate health"

(of a state or condition) easily upset or affected.
"owls have a delicate balance with their habitat"

requiring sensitive or careful handling.
"delicate negotiations"

"a delicate approach is needed"

skillful and finely judged; deft.
"his delicate ball-playing skills"

(of an instrument) highly sensitive.

Delicate - Noun (informal)

a delicate fabric or garment.
"the delicates cycle of a washing machine"

I think that is going to give you PLENTY of ideas :)

Our amazing sponsor for this challenge is

We are very lucky to be having TaeEun (Rainbow in November) as our Guest Designer for this challenge. You have more than likely been seeing TaeEun's incredible work around blog land. She has an amazing style!

"Hi, I'm TaeEun. I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer at Addicted to CAS. I'm originally from South Korea and living in New Jersey, USA with my supportive family since 2013, when I moved from Germany. I ran across card making on Youtube last year. After watching many of video tutorials I started making my own cards. And it has become a passion. I can't say I have my own card style yet, but I feel comfortable when I make a CAS card."

Onto our inspiration for you -
