I went super clean and simple for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch #213. I wanted to combine it with this weeks The Paper Players theme, which was a CAS baby card. When I sat down to create a card for both challenges, I couldn't decide between boy or girl, since it was such a simple card, I decided to do one of each. Here they both are:
