Clean & Simple for Flutter By Wednesday

Today, for Flutter By Wednesday, we'd like to challenge you to make a CLEAN AND SIMPLE card with BUTTERFLIES, FAIRIES or ANGELS. I don't know about you but clean and simple is anything but simple for me. LOVE the look but it usually takes me awhile to achieve it. I found this awesome challenge blog, Clean and Simple Stamping, that provides terrific sketches and inspiration. A while ago, they posted links to all their sketches so far which is where I found this sketch (#26) for my card!

pretty cool, huh? I used PTI papers and cardstocks, punches (squares, border and butterflies) and a TAC set for the sentiment. I'm very pleased with this clean and simple card...for once. I have to tell you that I look at blogs all the time and LOVE the clean and simple look but just can't seem to achieve it. So today is a big day for me :)

Please be sure to stop by the Flutter By Wednesday blog for all the details regarding the challenge and to post your creation. I know things have been a little hectic right now but Danni and the whole DT try to visit all the participants. We LOVE seeing your creations - you are all such wonderful inspirations to us! Don't forget to visit the DT's blogs as well - their links are on my sidebar. Unfortunately we say goodbye to Chris and Shana this week. Both have brought such beautiful creations to the team and we'll miss them. I have to say that Chris has been with FBW for quite some time and I've had the privilege to get to know her - she is so sweet and caring and her work is to die for! I consider her a friend and will truly miss her!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
