Happy Monday to everyone hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I decided to do a clean and simple card today for a few reasons really. 1) I'm trying to do 2 cards a day so I will have some to post next week when my son and grandson are here 2) I was running out of time as I have loads to do and I found an image I had stamped several years ago and 3) I saw it in a challenge on Feline Playful. So I thought yes I can do that easy peasy, which I must admit is fairly easy and quick as the image was already stamped and layered but what was the difficult bit and I must stress very diffiicult is to resist the temptation to add things to it!! The ribbon box came out and I thought ooooh that would look perfect but no not really CAS then is it? I did the same with some snowflakes, by this time I was suffering embellishment withdrawal symptoms - you know shaking, glazed eyes and slightly sobbing - so I relented and put 3 miniscule gems in the corner which made me feel better and I hope it is still CAS.
The image is an Aspects of Design which I have had many years and I have embossed it on red velvety card in white EP and layered it on silver holographic and green card. I have embossed the snow flake design and layered that on silver holographic paper and added 3 little lonesome gems.
I will enter the following challenges:
Sweet Stamps - Clean and Simple
ABC Christmas Challenge - Unused Stash (Stamped Image)
The Paper Shelter - Must Use Animals
Creative Inspirations Paint - Clean and Simple
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Anything Goes
Bling it On - No Patterned Papers
Thanks for looking, take carexx
