Night Night & Christmas Eve Night...

This little baby has the right idea...

feety pajamas, snuggly bear and a cuddly blanket...

Pretty soon I'll be ready to go "night night"

just like this digi that debuted last week...

This week at Paper Pretties

our challenge for you is to create a "CAS"

(Clean and Simple) card.

Be sure to link back your new creation to

for a chance to win!

Good Luck!!!

I sought out a sketch for motivation and found this one from

Priscilla Styles --Midnight Madness Sketch #81

(there are 2 sketches to choose from, the other one is more simple-hint hint)

I struggled with the super minimum embellishing for the "CAS" theme!

I needed to fru-fru it a weebit!

Here is how I combined the sketch and my digi...

The 5 arched dots in the sketch could not have been more perfectly placed!

The sketch implies flowers, or at least their petals,

peeking out from behind 2 corners of the image,

I wanted to focus on the baby boy and his blanket-

so I opted for strips of coordinating fabric...

Sweet Dreams!
