Last week I stumbled upon a (new to me) blog – Clean and Simple Stamping. They host challenges that encourage clean and simple cards. I love the look of clean and simple, but struggle sometimes to really do it…so I definitely wanted to watch this blog and participate.
This card was made for challenge #FTL31 (sketch challenge). I have an anniversary card to make. I’m not sure how/why, but the sofa image from Stampin’Up! jumped into my head immediately. I am learning that I like fun and cute more than elegant. After I selected my images, I checked out my paper stash and found this fun pattern that reminded me of buttons (and the color scheme was perfect for the recipients). I really really wanted to add a button to the paper, but it needed a bit a twine, and then I just felt that was too much. I really like how this card turned out!
