A Clean and Simple Card

I am really pleased with this card and have made it in a couple of colours but I like the blue best and I've experimented with various ways of adding a sentiment. The cirlce and scallped circle combination has ended up being my favourite.

I embossed the flowers onto vellum and coloured them in from behind to give a soft colour. The circle embossing folder I got as a free gift from the SU special occasions catalogue and I've used it for lots of things already as it's such a versatile design. The leaf sizzlit was the very first thing I ever bought from Stampin' Up and it's more than paid for itself - I even begin to wonder if it is possible for such things to wear out.

What I like best about this card is the simple harmony and sense of balance.

This is for the Paper Players Challenge, 17 May 2014
