SHOPPING OUR STASH #311 - CAS for National Simplicity Day

Hello crafty peeps and welcome!
So for the new challenge at
we want to see your CAS cards!
 In the spirit of NSD, you can also include
something recycled or upcycled on your CAS project, but it's not mandatory.

For my card, I recycled a bit of cardboard from a box:

 and the inside:

Also in the spirit of NSD, I've recycled a birthday age. (wink!)

The pineapple and festive drink was die cut, colored, then I covered both
with a layer of Wink of Stella for some subtle shimmer.

 Now it's your turn to create a CAS card! (you know you want to!) Just link up at
Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it! For more ideas, please visit the blogs
of my teammates and leave some lovin while there!
Thanks for visiting!

You know what Chris? you just made me want to take a second look at cardboard boxes, love, LOVE the texture you got on your card with this small piece of humble cardboard.
You also kind of made me want a Pina Colada but, I think it's way to early in the morning, only 9:30, to start drinking, don't you think? LOL!!
Awesome card, Teammie.
