A simple card.

Hi everyone,
I have just made a card for the challenge over at Addicted to CAS. You can find the challenge  HERE
It's quite a challenge for me as I mostly embellish quite a bit. However I really liked just keeping it simple and enjoyed the process.
I used a white hammer card and a dark royal blue to matt and layer. I used silver linen card under the topper as it framed it nicely against the white card.
The flowers are hand drawn on vellum, embossed and cut out. I finished it with a white gel pen and a greeting. Part of me wants to add gems but I resisted :-)




I'll have to try some more similar cards. Wouldn't they make lovely notelets. You can use any flower, butterfly or any stamp for the center.

Have a lovely day,
Kay.XX
