Thanks for organizing another great swap!

Cindi so glad you can join the swap this time!  Oh Heidi I hardly ever have a plan when committing to a swap-an idea will come or give us a shout here if you need a couple thoughts.

I have plans to work on this today. I picked out my stamp and I think I wow what direction I want to go in. Given the theme, it has me thinking of clean and simple.

LeighAnn I am so glad you are jumping in!  Keep in mind while clean and simple designed cards generally convey a light and airy feel...this challenge is to use a product to convey that feeling. Absolutely terrific to combine the product to enhance the CAS design!  So far I have suggested: vellum, acetate and transparent watercolor. Can't wait to see what folks create!

Thanks, Jan! I finished up my card and just need to get it in the mail for pickup.

I don't think I have ever used acetate on a card, other than for a shaker card. I can't recall where I saw them but I came across some acetate card bases recently that were really interesting looking. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
