Just C.A.S...

For my 2nd card for my guest design spot over at Cardz 4 Guys, 
the theme is C.A.S (Clean and simple).
I love making a card with that theme... this was right up my street!

I used the "perfect blend" coffee cup and coloured it softly, with my promarkersand stamped a birthday sentiment, straight onto the card with a docrafts stamp.
Then, I added  a corrugated card, "cup holder",
a cream strip and a polka dot strip and embossed a square around the whole thing,
to bring the card together.
Finally, I handcut the nametag, stamping with with my tiny docrafts alphabet stamps.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
