Clean and Simple......

Over at

....they would like you to keep it simple  - a less is more challenge!
Now... I have always found CAS cards a real Big challenge...as maximum embellishment is my middle name LOL!!
I thought I would make some cards for my knitting pals....
I've used....Kraft card, Archival ink, stamped (Purple Onion design - Heart Banner / Crafter's Companion - Close Knit Friends)
paper pieced assorted papers, paperartsy paints, white pen.
They look great in a different range of colours/patterns too!....
But it's so hard not to add more embellies...lace, ribbons and buttons etc....
Clean and simple is sooooooo hard for me!

Thanks for peeking!
