CAS challenge and Altered Arts E-zine

Stampotique is sponsoring over at the CAS blog (Cas-ual Fridays = clean and simple) and the theme is "squares"/square cards.  Why in the heck is it such a challenge for me to do CAS???  lol.....oh well.....Here is my card:
Easy peasy...sponged around a circle, stamped two inks with "birds of a feather 2061" and "just because 5239".  Lined it up with my sharpie fine pen.  Had to tie my hands after this he he he!  Wanted to do so much more!   Next up I am LOVING me some ROC NICHOLAS and ALTERED ART E-zine!  I was actually dieing to try Roc's envie technique..and I thought I would for my  Altered Art project!  Go easy on me please...its my first attempt making an altered envelope!
I hand painted (fingers) on some acrylics and gesso...then stamped this up with the following from Stampotique:  bubbles 2059, Amelia 7019, and swirl stalks 3028.   I did some "dotting" with white gesso and paint and a credit card.  I lined Amelia with an orange glittery gel pen and a permapaque on her cheek.  I also used a BG000 copic inside the bubbles and some glittery green gel pen for some more dots.  So much fun for a first attempt and I KNOW I will be doing this A L O T !  Challenges for this fun envie are :"challenge up your life"= do what you like and anything goes", first time playing there :)  and "simply create" = anything goes  THANKS FOR LOOKING- Have a GREAT weekend and see you tomoro for the new challenge at Unscripted Sketches  :)

CAS is hard for me as well, you did a great job on it :) I love your altered envelope. I can't stand when they are just plain and I do decorate my envelopes as well!
