Clean and Simple

The Clean and Simple challenge on SCS inspired me today when I finally made it to the Haven. I am not particularly good at clean or simple cards, so it was indeed a challenge for me.

I thought about using dp for the dots, but decided that wasn't really clean or simple for me. The Cuttlebug folder, Swiss Dots, was perfect, but ... I couldn't use it at the top of the card (it's a one layer card). AH! The dotted edge folder that came in one of the border sets works wonderfully!!

I'm in love with this spider from Spider Greetings released on August 1st at Clear Dollar Stamps. He's so CUTE! On my card, he hangs from a piece of PTI ribbon and is colored with Copics.

Stamps : Spider Greetings
Paper : MM White
Ink : Memento Black, Copics (BV00, BV08, C3)
Accessories : Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug folders, ribbon (PTI)
Technique : Clean and Simple

I've also entered this card in the Black and White challenge on Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings!

Sorry I didn't get anything posted yesterday. I ... ummm ... got stuck in my 14 year old son's closet for most of the day. Wow. Glad, so glad, to be out of there!

Hopefully, I will be posting a challenge for you tomorrow. :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
