TGIFC13 - Clean & Simple!

Hello and happy Friday!  I'm so glad you're joining me today to check out this week's theme at TGIF Challenges, and I hope you're poised and ready to play along!


Today's theme is one of those tricky ones that looks SO easy.  But for me?  Clean and simple is one of the hardest things to achieve!  


My designs are typically neither clean nor simple - I'm all about layers and embellishments and bright colours and a big crafty mess.  I think this card went through about six versions before I finally settled on something! 


I love the sweet combo of Mint Macaron, Early Espresso, and Gold - so calming, like a spa.  Some stamping, some gold embossing, and a bit of Crystal Effects on the embellishment and this card was done.  It's a quick-and-easy five-minuter once I decided!

I'd LOVE to see what you come up with this week - please join us at TGIF Challenges by clicking the banner above to see what the other designers came up with and play along!  Cheers!
