Winter Wreaths...
Snow much fun...

Playing dressup...

I am jumping in at the last minute to play along with The Card Concept challenge.  Life has been a bit chaotic over the last week and I didn’t think I would even make the deadline!

Today’s card falls in the clean and simple category.  I find these cards the hardest to make of all.  Do you?  I used to think I was a CAS but after making cards for a while now, I see I really am not.  I tend to like layers and buttons and twine and ribbon.  So when I play along with this challenge I like to choose the clean and simple.   There are so many people out in blog land that do such a beautiful job with CAS.  And I think, I can do that.  And then I do and it is like a little kid playing dress up. card concept 1

I started off with PTI white and used a variety of Stampin’ Up! inks that I stamped off several times before stamping on my project.  I used an old circle frame to make a soft circle of images on the card.  I really liked this card and felt like I was grown up at last.  And then I added the hello.  And there I was back in my mom’s high heels with her dress dragging on the ground.  Oh well. card concept 2

Thanks for stopping by today!
