Shabby CAS


This is soooooooo out of the box for me.  No black matting....NO MATTING AT ALL!!!!  I tried to conjure up my innermost 'Silke" (yep, Ms. Ledlow of the famed classy, clean, and fabulous CAS creations) and it was so very hard to keep myself from cutting mats.....but....I must admit, I do like the final results.  Nothing like anyone else's style, but MY version of CAS.....LOL!!!!!

The pearls sticking out at the top really DO NOT stick out on the top.  The camera angle did that.  There are actually other pearls on those strands, but they really don't show well in the photo.

So....whaddathink???  Did I accomplish CAS?????

I don't know, how many times did you have to punch out flowers to get this gorgeous bloom?? LOL... I think the pearls are a lovely accent and I like it without all the matting, but CAS is my fave style!!
