Simple Sentiment


As many of you know, I follow a blog called Simplicity ( see it in my blog favs list). Susan has a wonderful clean and simple style. Something I am always trying to emulate.  This weeks One Layer Wednesday challenge was to make a sentiment the main focus of the card, with only one layer. I laid awake last night and thought I had a brilliant idea, but when I went to make it I realized it was full of layers, albeit all white, but a few layers. Back to the stamping board.

Then I thought- "come on girlfriend- keep it simple"! So out came a saying set from My Favorite Things that I rarely use. (just because the sentiments are meant to be the main focus.) Vertical Greetings II. Add a random heart to highlight the saying and their you have it. sigh.... so much time spent on a simple card....

Now here is another interpretation of this card, with lots of layers and colors. This card is more me.
What do you think? CAS or DAC (dirty and complicated!)?


Enjoying my Yay-boo day!

Happy Creating!!
