Crafty Cardmakers 29 - Clean and Simple.

Hello everyone and here we are at the start of another week already. Today I thought I'd show you the card I made for the new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Our new challenge this week is Clean and Simple. I hope this looks clean and simple to you! I donated this to Jacqui at Simply Create for her fundraising event for Save the Children yesterday.

This card was inspired by some cards that Clare had on her blog a few weeks ago. I didn't realise till I checked tonight that one of her cards was made with spotty DP too. Her's was a different image too so I hope she doesn't mind me using her idea. I saw her cards at the end of June and was very impressed by them at the time. I haven't looked at them since then so I was quite surprised to find one was spotty too.

I stamped this lovely image from Hero Arts straight onto a C6 card. I also stamped it onto some lovely spotty paper from Wild Rose Studios, cut out the flowers and 3D'd them. I added a piece of the same DP edged with a piece of matching card that had been edged with a Martha Stewart punch and finished off with a piece of ribbon tied with a simple knot. And that's my card, very quick and simple. Hope you like it and have a minute to tell me what you think. My talented teamies have made some gorgeous cards this week and they'd love to hear from you too.

I'd like to enter the challenge at Secret Crafter which is also clean and simple.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your clean and simple cards over the next 2 weeks.
