Clean and Simple


I like to try different types of projects and cards, yet I usually go back to my old stand-by of the Clean and Simple style. Maybe that also says something about me as a person as well. I'm not a "frilly" person by any means so I usually struggle with that type of card. I would just have to say I'm probably conservative......kinda like, well.......clean and simple!

I really liked this card when I finished it - that doesn't always happen to me! The paper I used was Pretty in Pink, Lovely Lilac, White and the Playful Pink Paper Pack from MS. I also used a MS punch on this. Of course the butterflies were die cut with the Beautiful Wings die and then I added a couple of rhinestones to their bodies to kinda give them some "oomph". I stamped the sentiment (Whimsical Words -SU) in Versamart and then Lovely Lilac and then heat embossed using the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. And last but not least - I added the ribbon and the bow using my trusty Bow Easy! The layout is from - well - Clean and Simple Stamping!

Thanks for stopping by..............

Beautiful! I love the soft colors on this one. That MS punch is great too!!!
I bounce back and forth between CAS and more elaborate cards. I really can't say which ones I like best - guess it depends on my "mood"!!
