CAS 3 ways

Hello there friends,
Question: Do you know what's my craft Kryptonite?





 Yes!!! It's CAS cards. You'd think they would be simple cuz... well... they're Clean And SIMPLE cards, but they're SOOOOO hard for me! So when I saw this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop, I cringed a little. But, that's why it's called a sketch challenge & not a sketch nothing to it. So I decided to take it on:
Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:
There are NO layers on this card! I know!!! The snowflakes are made with Tim's Snowflake Rosettes with some pretty MS paper. I also used some of her Snow Glitter along the bottom edge leading up to the sentiment.

Here's a closer peek:
 Here's a peek of the innies:
 The bottom edge is actually one of the rosettes I didn't use on the front of my card. I used Shimmer White card stock so it's got lots of shimmery goodness :)

I was so excited I actually created a CAS card, I made more! :)

Here's a New Year's card:
I took inspiration from my students for this card. Some of my girls write a word in block and then another in script over it---> to be "cutesy," I guess ;)

Here's a closer peek at that:
The numbers & word are PTI dies. The "Happy New Year" stamp is from Firecracker Designs, but is no longer available :(

And here's card number 3: A Graduation card
 I felt like cranking out more, but I like 3... three is a good number :) So am I leaving my layers for CAS??? Nahhhh...

I'll play along in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Winter (My first card)
Craft Room: Punches/ Diecuts
Crafty Catz: Anything Goes

Thanks so much for peeking today. :)
