Clean and Simple Birthday

You have to love cards that are Clean and Simple (CAS).

My baby sister is a tough cookie. She appreciates the fact that I make cards....she's just not really THAT fussed about them. So for her birthday, I toned down everything.....literally!! I started out with a piece of SU Whisper White CS and then got some black ink and one of my fave SU sets....Pocket Silouettes. A bit of meauring...a bit of stamping and here's the result.

Added a white bit of ribbon and a sentiment from the FAB Amy R set and presto!!

I loved it so much that I also did one in Mellow Moss...same layout, but different feel. It could also be used for a Christmas card, Sympathy card...anything really.

Hope you like this CAS idea. I know I do. It goes up so very quick and looks pretty.

Thanks for dropping by and catch you next time.

Stuff used:
Card: (SU) Whisper White, Basic Black, Mellow Moss
Ink: (SU) Basic Black, Mellow Moss
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes (SU) and Amy R "Birthday Sentiments".
Misc: White satin ribbon fm stash.

Very classic ... and very elegant. I am sure your sis still appreciated the simplicity of this one! Love the Mellow Moss colour ... it really does give the card a completely different look to the original.
I am pouting ... can you see it??? Am wondering how such a new blogger can get 10 comments on the one post!? I have to bribe my blog visitors to leave a comment!!! I don't think I have ever had 10 comments without a bribe!!! :( What is your secret ... miss popularity???
