Clean and Simple

I used the Big Sizzix  Wing Die and embossed it with one of Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folders. I tried something different with the wings. I make it look dimensional. On one end I put one layer of sticky circles and the other two so that it would look like it was in flight. The ribbon is actually from my stash of recycle from a when I can use them.
Hi Everyone,
I found a fun new Blog  called Twist of Faith Card Challenges it runs weekly and encourages you to
share your uplifting, healing, inspirational and scriptural card creations.  It is right up my alley. And I decided to jump in with both feet on this weeks challenge 'Clean and Simple'.  And to tell you the truth I found it to be a tough challenge on the part of making a clean card. I am not sure why more times than less I enjoy lots of pretties on my card but not everybody does and I need to take note and work on that because I have a few friends that I give note cards or a package of mixed occasion cards as gifts and they are not into all those added emblishments.  So if they are giving them away it is not really in their taste for giving.  This blue card is actually the second card. I am going to show you the other one which is what I consider clean but when I showed it to my Grand Daughter she said the blue one is considered clean and simple to her. Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks that is an old myth. This new challenge has and is going to help me learn how to monitor some of my card making. And perfect my way of doing clean and simple  which is a beautiful thing. Some things are meant to be learned through process and its turning out to be a good thing for me.

Here is the first card I made and what I considered Clean and simple and is Not I believe its considered monochromatic in the card crafting world.

This card was created with love and will be perfect to submit to the
Blog Created with Love Challenges. In creating I used one of Anna Griffins Cuttlebug embossing folders, put some lace ribbon then a line of bling. I really loved making this card it was so quick and simple.

THank you Jill for your kind words. I order my sentiment stamps and lately some of my Sizzix, Spellbinders dies for 50% to 40% off online from Joann Fabrics..they are on Facebook, join their email list and you will be surprised of their sometimes really cheap Shipping(like 35cent to $2.00 to Free) Hobby Lobby has been the best for Scriptures & encouraging sentiments.
