CASology #87: BLUSH

Hello, friends!  Today's CASology cue may make you blush...get ready! 

We are sponsored by Cathy at "Stamps and Scrapbooks" and I invite you to check out the details at the CASology blog.  Thanks for sponsoring us this week, Cathy!

For this particular cue, I actually went to look up the dictionary definition of "blush."  Here is what I found:
1. a reddening of the face as a sign of embarrassment or shame.
2. a wine with a slight pink tint made in the manner of white wine but from red grape varieties.

When you see my card, you'll know which definition inspired me!

For my card I used two free digi images printed directly to card stock.  The sentiment is designed by Hannelie from desert diva.  Have you seen her awesome free digi sentiments?  Check out her blog HERE for a whole bunch of inspiration.  The image is from Dearie Dolls Digis.  Be sure to check out the sweet images there, too...Mary Ellen Smith is such a talented artist!  You can download her images in black and white or  in color...I chose the color version because their blushing cheeks were perfectly shaded!  Thank you, Hannelie and Mary Ellen, for sharing your talents with us so freely!

So, what makes this card fit the "CAS" bill?  Let's review.  One layer, no embellishments, no multi-layers, no clutter, lots of white space.  This is my favorite type of card because there is no hassle to mail it!  (No bulk. No bulges. One stamp.)

Need more inspiration for the cue this week?  Let me share a photo I found online that I thought might also be inspiring...

(Isn't this a pretty arrangement of blush wine?)

OK, now off you go!  Remember our new deadlines...you have until Monday at noon (central time) to upload your entries.  Go check out the creative cards by our Design Team and our wonderful Guest Designer, Jeanne!
