Thought of you today...

Here's a sweet card I created for the Splitcoast Stampers Clean and Simple challenge! I love my fancy cards, but the CAS look is growing on me! I just need to learn how to keep it clean, especially when I have so many embellishments lying around! Heck, I didn't even put a ribbon on it, which is rare indeed for me!

Of course, this was a very quick card to make! I folded a piece of Bazzill cardstock and used Spellbinders™ Grand Labels Twenty-Three Grand Nestabilities® to cut out my card. To do this technique you place the folded edge just inside the die, run it through your Grand Calibur® machine, and you get a die cut card.

I embossed a white piece of cardstock with M-Bossabilities™ "Flower Fun - Side B" and cut out three strips of 3 flowers and adhered them to peach cardstock. I used Copic Marker R22 for the flower centers. I attached my three floral pieces to my card and stamped a sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

For my final touch, I created a pretty flower using Shapeabilities® Bauble Blossom Two. I airbrushed the blossom while it was still in the die with Copic Markers, then assembled my flower and used a pretty pearl brad for the center. I added it to my card and was pleased with the results!
