CAS Changito Clover

Hello and "Happy Wednesday", or as some call it "hump day". Good to know we are halfway to the weekend!

Today's card is one I made Monday for the CAS Challenge over on SCS. The challenge was to make a square card (mine is 4.25"). I used to play regularly, but hadn't played for awhile. I need to get back in the habit because they are fun challenges and it's fun to make a quick card. I wasn't happy with my original photo, so I just snapped some more outside; the quality is certainly better.

I colored my little buddy Changito with Crayolas/Goo Gone. He's attatched to the card with foam tape over a little border I like to make. First I pierce a line, next I score on each side, last I add some brads. I think this is a fast way to add some zip! Click on the photo to see if that helps to see the scoring. Last I stamped an extra clover, colored it, cut it out, and popped it up.
