CAS Back to School Card

This card is using the same Back to School Snowman digital stamp set by From the Heart Stamps as I used in another back to school card recently, but this little guy is just so cute I had to play with him again! There's a Sunday CAS challenge over at The Outlawz each week, and this week the theme was "Anything Goes, so I thought I'd use this cute Apple paper and another of the flairs I won fromBossy Joscie last week to make this card. I tend to struggle with CAS cards. I like layers and embellishments and have trouble figuring out how much "stuff" on my card is too much for CAS. Hopefully this qualifies! There are definitely some gorgeous CAS cards out there. I just need more practice, I guess!
Using my Silhouette Design Studio software, I sized this snowman school child up and printed him out. I colored him with the new set of Copic markers my husband gave me for my birthday this morning (so excited to play with my new "toys"!), used Anna Griffin Glass Effects on his glasses and cut him out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals. I was following this week's sketch over at Viva La Verve, so I cut my background apple paper to match the size and shape of that element on the sketch. I used the "You are awesome" flair at the bottom (I'm thinking this would be a good card for my youngest to give to a teacher she likes) and added a few red candy dots on the top right. Voila!
