CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC15

Welcome to a very special challenge at
CAS-ual Fridays
Its a 2 in 1 challenge!

This week we have joined forces with
Clean & Simple Stamping
to play with their
Fall-to-layout and for fun, you can link with them too!
If you ever need to jumpstart your mojo, they have inspiring Clean And Simple sketches archived on their sidebar to spark your creativity.
So your challenge for this week is...
Create a Clean And Simple card using the FTL Sketch. 
You can then link your card at both challenges!
*remember, we only allow up to 4 combined challenges, this counts as 2*

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!
Our TGIF winner will get to choose $15 worth of stamps or digi's from

Lori McCroskey started Clear Dollar Stamps in the corner of her basement in October of 2004.  Originally, all Clear Dollar Stamps were designed by Lori.  As time went on, Clear Dollar Stamps attracted the talents of Laurie Wilson, Vicki Conquest, Kim Teasdale, and Shawne Arnold.  Lori is constantly watching for new talent to add to the variety of styles Clear Dollar Stamps carries.

Clear Dollar Stamps does not have expensive or fancy packaging in an effort to keep prices low and to be as green as possible.  We want EVERY stay at home mom to be able to afford stamps if she wants them!  We want to be a one stop shop!  Clear Dollar Stamps carries a variety of products including:  Spellbinder's dies, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Flower Soft, Zutter Bind-It-All products, Basic Grey, Eyelet Outlet embellishments, Versamark, Ancient Page ink pads and refills, and much, much more!
