FTL189 Thinking & Wishing

Okay, I'm back again with another card. Today's card is for my design team work at the Clean and Simple Stamping Blog (Fall to Layout). This is for Sketch 189. For a clean and simple card, I used a lot of product on this, like 4 stamp sets, 2 impression plates, 2 die-cuts, and 7 ink colors! They say the definition of clean and simple is a lot of white space. That is not true. You can still make a beautiful clean and simple card using other colors and a focal point. This card happens to have 2, but that's what the sketch called for, and I even left out a layer per the sketch. It was really hard for me to photograph the Fine Linen so I hope that you can see beyond that. The base of the card has dry embossing on it as well as the flowers. I think it just adds a certain elegant element to the card and I hope that you do too. I really love learning how to and creating my own designer paper with stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me again today. I have a lot going on this week. Hugs and blessings.
