Keep it Clean and Simple

Morning everyone,

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed some sunshine.  We celebrated my youngest daughter's 21st birthday yesterday - my I'm feeling old! Lol. I will upload her birthday card later in the week.

It's time for a new challenge over at Make My Monday and this week we would love to see your 'Clean and Simple' projects using FLOWERS. So no fancy distressing or embellishing - just a nice CAS look with flowers as the main theme.  Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

Well, this is a very different look for me (coming from the person who never knows when to stop embellishing!) and I am coming to love this style of crafting. They look so crisp and are so quick and easy to design. This one is 6x6" and is a piece of white pearlescent cardstock matted onto a square of turquoise textured card.  I used a flower die to cut out the flower shape, allowing the turquoise layer to show through. I then added a second, smaller flower cut from a scrap of patterned paper with a button centre to highlight. A piece of twine and a sentiment to finish off.

I shall look forward to visiting your blogs to see your interpretations of our theme this week.
Hugz, Jan xx
