A Play Date with Simon Says
Here's post #2 for the day! :)
I love the challenges on the Simon Says site. This week's challenge was to create a clean and simple card. Truth be told, this is one of the hardest techniques for me! Mainly because I LOVE to emboss things and distress things. But, when I saw the challenge at the Play Date Cafe, I was immediately drawn to it! Here's the challenge photo:
Clean and simple was the name of this card! I used some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and then stamped the circle sentiments in black. Then, I stamped the small birthday cake in mustard seed distress ink and the card was done! It was so fast and simple, I'm thinking of making a ton of them so I can always have some b-day cards on hand.
I think the clean and simple challenge is almost over but there's still time to join the Play Date challenge. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
