SOS #199: Oppostite Day

It's Tuesday , and time for a new challenge. This week's theme is Opposite Day, and we'd like you to make something that's opposite your usual style. I know, I know, some of us don't have a defined style, but we do tend to certain habits, and if yours is more CAS, think about adding some fluff or layers. If you're more of a more-is-more person, try cutting back to more white space. It's a challenge, right? :)

Here's how the ladies have interpreted this week's challenge:

as you may know, i'm not usually CAS... so i had to give it a shot! :)
 I occasionally dabble in CAS, but this is a very very clean-and-graphic card for me (and yes, I feel itchy!)
My least favourite type of card to do is Distressing so with clenched teeth I took my scissors to all the layers and ripped the vellum for the sentiment.

I'm not into super CAS, so I resisted the urge to add some sequins, buttons or ribbons and just added some washi tape, which I last used...hmmm, maybe 3 years ago.... :)

 I've been tending towards CAS lately, so I broke out some mixed media stuff to make a background. And layers - I added layers. 
I never ever use different design papers on the same card and I never draw my own borders.
I distressed my papers and used rub-ons and stickers instead of stamps for a grungier look - I usually like clean borders on my cards and almost always use stamps

Now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash and make something that's different than your normal style. Please make sure to tell us what it is, as it may not be obvious to us!  Then link us up below so we can stop by and see what you've made.

The link-up will be open until Monday, May 4th (MAY?!?!) at 11:55 PM EDT. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.
