As it's the start of a new month, which means we are happy to introduce you to our wonderful Guest Designer for February.  Welcome Ellen Parker (In a World of Craft).

Wow! What an honor to be asked to Guest Design for ATCAS this month! My card making became a passion once I retired and had time to really focus on it. I have learned tons from all of the friends I have made on-line! 
For a while, I didn't know what CAS was. It took me while to understand the concept and was definitely not a style that came naturally to me! When I saw how stunning CAS designs could be, I was hooked! I started studying design concepts and following some amazing CAS card makers and of course playing at ATCAS! 
I am so happy to be sharing this time with you this month! I can't wait to see everyone's creativity at work!

ok! onto our inspiration






Now it is your turn! If you would like to see how we came up with our ideas, please visit our blogs.

Congratulations, Janet!! Here is what Jaydee had to say about your card -

Janet's card showcases how a card can have so much interest and yet still be CAS.  The colors all work together beautifully.  The vertical details lead the eye up to the top of the card and the pop of blue behind the cut-out makes sure that your eye gets to land exactly where it should - on the focal point.  The stitched circle echoes the pattern on the circular element.  Beautifully composed and executed card.

Janet please grab your badge from the tab at the top of the page and email me at within 5 days to claim your prize.
