It's a Clean & Simple Kind of Day


Today i have a card for Clean & Simple Online Card Class, CAS-ual Friday's and entering this into Hero Arts Love Challenge. The challenge this week at Cas-ual Friday's is to use chipboard and at Hero Arts the theme is all about love.

So for my card i used the sketch from the Online Card Class and rather then having the outer square have a pattern, i used it on the interior squar. I used Hero Arts Lauderdale Tree background stamp for the pattern.

I only used 2 elements at the bottom, in this case birdrs, because i only had 2 ... and i thought it fit better with the sentiment anyway. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner.

The birds are chipboard and i covered one with some pink pattern paper and the other i stamped and white embossed a dot and dash background. Then i mixed a little liquid pearls with water and painted the bird. Last i adhered the birds just above the sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by!
