CAS fun

A very good morning to all!
I am currently in CAS mood nowadays, almost every card I made in recent times is a CAS card, sharing 2 cards which I made yesterday evening.

The first one up is a one layer card, stamping done sparingly on it. The sentiment is computer generated. I used a quote, "Simplicity and complexity need each other", and added the next line on my own...I love adding my own words too...I have a feeling that soon I will be coming up with my own words for the sentiment ;)...I can totally blame it on my reading habits :O

The two interlocking hearts are from Paper Smooches - Sweet hearts. I used in opposite colors of red and green. this card is all about opposites, I was inspired by the One Layer Simplicity Challenge. I have a total of 6 sets of opposites on this simple card...keep guessing, I will list those at the One layer Simplicity Challenge description below.

That's it, nothing really to go on and on about this card, but it will be on one of my favorite cards list. Hope you can see through eyes, why I love it...and you like it too.

 Linking this card with:

One Layer Simplicity
 I have many opposites here :
1. Green and Red
2. Black and white
3. Simplicity and Complexity
4. You and Me
5. The fonts - Cursive and printed
6. Hearts - Big and Small

 Here is another interpretation of the cue -  Convincing someone for a date with words ;)
I hope you can understand where I am coming from :)

 Virginia' View Challenge
Another clean entry here, I need to check how many cards I can add to this challenge ;)

Paper Smooches Sparks Anything goes
 The only stamping I have done is using the Sweet hearts from Paper Smooches stamps.


The second card is also a simple one with monochromatic color scheme.
I chose to do sponging here, and faded it as I went up, and added the feathers in the same color plus few rhine stones as well.
The stamp set which I won from STAMPlorations arrived a day before, so put use to this new set - I stamped the typewriter and the sentiment, fussy cut it to add it on the card, using foam adhesive on both, and done. Hope you all like this one too!

Linking this one with:
