Clean and Simple

Now this is truly a very difficult challenge for ME... I have a hard time doing things Clean and Simple.. and every Tuesday I try to do a Clean and Simple card.. this week I think I have done it...

I studied a lot of other cards... cased some, and then added my own to each one... so here they are...

The one on the left... well I did get a little carried away with all the layers.. .but it is still clean and Simple... right??? I added a few of my flowers... and a bow... not a fussy bow... a simple bow.

This one I get a little bit better with... I still have a lot of layers, but wanted the all white and a few little birds... the challenge also had a Theme of SPRING...

I am so in the mood for spring.. .and today, I did feel it in the air.. .I even had on a short sleeve shirt... and nothing else... felt so very nice... WE had BLUE sky that is so typical of North Carolina, and it was spring feeling.. .only a little while, but it was enough to let me know that it is coming... and that made me feel really good..

These two cards... I just had to try this out... a little point on Vellum, and I used some patterns from Some Assembly Required... Love that companies patterns... and then I framed them.. .added a butterfly.. and an embossed background and they were cards... no bows, just as is... This was to make the point relief's stand out... which I think they do...

Hope you enjoy these... I think I have finally figured out how to create Clean and Simple... now if I remember that is another story... LOL...

Have a fun time here... snoop around and see every thing... and hope you come back again..
Love, Light and Peace... Bonnie..


  1. Gorgeous cards Bonnie and I know you have got it!! I love them all but my favorite is the very first one. Yes, it has layers but the white on white indeed does still make it clean and simple in my eyes. It means different things to different people. :-) Your cards are always stellar no matter what you call them!! Hope you have a wonderful week dear friend! Hugs, Judi

  2. Oh NO, my favorite technique!!!! LOL! You know I do not like to do the pricking thing, but they are always so pretty! Your cards are great!
