CAS?

I have a couple cards to share today along with a couple more "kid" cards.  First, I'd like some feedback from you about whether or not the flower cards I'm sharing today could be considered CAS in your opinion.  I think there's a difference between CAS cards (clean and simple) and cards with only one layer which some folks think is definitive of CAS cards.  Here's the cards I whipped up last night:




 
I'm trying to figure out how to describe my style (in general).  I consider these to be CAS cards because while there are multiple layers, there's no ribbon, no buttons, no brads, etc.  They are not embellished in any way except for the image and the designer papers.  What do you all think?  The tulip and poppy images are by Arielle at Wax Fruit Company and the vase image is a freebie from Digital Two for Tuesdays.

Here's the aforementioned "kid" cards (I think they are pretty CAS too except for the brads):



 
The top image is from Designed 2 Delight and the bottom two images are from Digistamp Boutique.  I combined some elements from two graphics on the little piggy because I wanted him to have something besides mud in his portrait.

Also, while you all have your thinking caps on, which background do you prefer - the black or the white?
 
Thanks for visiting!

I don't know about CAS but they sure are cute.

I often look at http://simplicitybylateblossom.blogspot.ca/ by Susan Raihalla and to me that is CAS but then I am not into the different styles too much.

To me, CAS means one layer but I think yours are beautiful whether or not they truly qualify. I don't know who defined the CAS style, and who has to go by the rules anyway??

I think they are CAS but the backgrounds make them look more complicated. Those kids cards are so much fun. Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend. Jill x

I would definitely say these are CAS...and I would include the kids' ones, too. I also prefer the white background, but works both ways.
In any case, whatever your style is, it's delicious!
