I'm So Bad


I look around "Blog-land" and see so many fantastic creations by all you ladies and gents (yes, I said "gents" - if you have time go check out Kevin's blog, McCrafty's Cards - wonderful inspiration there)...Anyway, as I was saying......all these great cards and projects out there with super coloring, beautiful flowers, and such gorgeous designer paper.......and then here I go with something just very plain and simple (you notice I didn't say "clean and simple" - because when I think of "clean" I think of alot of white space). Anyway........here's my creation. No flowers, frills, or beautiful coloring....does that make me bad! Hope you enjoy anyway.

I used Crumb Cake, Real Red and white card stock. The images are from the SU set Filled With Love. I added the little button with floss and a single rhinestone.

This will be entered in the following challenges: Mark's Finest Papers - to use a heart on your project and CES Challenges - no designer paper.

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

Stamping is a fun hobby and I think if you create whatever you are inspired to you can't go wrong! All your cards are beautiful because they are handmade by you!!! Hugs, Karen

There is another guy, Daniel Askeland, he makes the most amazing things!
This is such a clean and simple card... i try too hard on one of these and end up adding more and more to it that it no longer remains a CAS! I love your ribbon it makes the card even more gorgeous!!

This is a terrific card!!!

You make the best cards ever! You have just the right amount of everything & you never clutter or busy-up your cards - you have an eye for knowing when it is just right & I envy that!

Anne Marie said...

Lynn, you make such amazing creations...I come to see YOU for inspiration every time! Love the simple design. Really makes that awesome ribbon and bow on the button shine! Love it!

Debgem said...

This is most definitely a clean and simple card. It's such fun too - love the ribbon and the cute button! Just fab!

"White space" doesn't have to be white to make it clean. "White space" means uncluttered. And you accomplished that. I like the kraft, white and red together and the contrast of the big bow and small images. Great Vday card.
