Another for CASology! ---- You are an Angel

Another for CASology!   ---- You are an Angel

My Sweet DTeamie May Park at CASology 
is the reason I had to do a copic card. 

She made a card for me, and I was touched.

She is enormously talented and very sweet.
She is of the rare breed of card makers out there that really reach the boundaries and touches on real sheer brilliance 
when it comes to a challenge.
One of my Favorites is where she made mini 
jumper cables on her card.
YES!  You heard that right..... mini jumper cables!
Check it (HERE)..
Her sweet mad genius amazes me so much. 

I am truly blessed with my DT, all of them!
So this card is for YOU!

This Angelfish stamp is from the set called Under the Sea Occasions.
Each fish or sea animal has a little sentiment underneath, which I separated on this one, 
If I know I will use a stamp for multiple stamping, 
I usually will separate any attached sentiment.
A perfect set for Copics!

Close to My Heart Under the Sea Occasions
Sentiment Inkadinkadoo Thanks Clear Stamp Set
Cloud9 Raindrop Stickers
Stampin Up! Tempting Turquoise
Memento Tuxedo Black

CAS Design Tips:
- One layer is less bulky and perfect for CAS cards
- Minimal imagery keeps it from being "busy" or cluttered
- Lots of FREE or open, "white" space simplifies the design
- "Less is More" on colors keeps it pleasingly CAS
MORE CAS elements:
(I also used the "Rule of 3"  - and Monochromatic )

Such a cute card. I remove sentiments sometimes and any little item like hearts that can be used if needed.

Kimberly, what can I say? This card ROCKS! I also couldn't agree with you more about May's genius (I am still amazed by the jumper cable card, too!)! Your copic-colored fish are the prettiest shade ever...just gorgeous!
