Fairly Clean and Simple.

Hello and welcome!!  So pleased you decided to come by!

Just a quick little post today to share another of my cards.   Not a lot of embellishment on this one so it was really quick to make. 

The black and white paper is from Maja.   I love the subtle florals on the background .. so pretty!  The top layer is by Kaisercraft from a collection called Rose Avenue.  Again, I love the subtle, faded  graphics and script.

The lovely chipboard flourish is by Little Birdie and I simply left it raw.
The bloom is the Puffy Paper Flower available from Megs Garden.  
I have to say I didn't purchase this bloom.  It was chosen as part of my DT consignment so I received it for free but, I also have to say, that I have purchased this flower in the past as it is one of my favorite go to flowers.  I really love the shape and size of it and, as I get them in white, I can spray them any colour I wish to match my card.  In this case I used Peacock Feather Distress Spray Stain.
I had quite a number of other embellies on my workbench such as, leaves and gauze, gems and twine, etc., which I had intended to use on this card.  But, when I got to this stage, I decided I really liked the look of it and left it as is.  Did have to add those prills and microbeads of course!  Can't do without those!!  LOL!!

Fairly clean, and really simple to make and, suitable for any occassion!
I like it .. hope you do too!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit!
Have yourselves a wonderful day!
Take care and God Bless.

    Crisp and clean at it's very best, with the bold turquoise taking a bow centre stage. Love this colour combo and your signature touch with the prills and micro beads. Keep cool over the next couple of days, they are going to be scorchers! x (pills and microbes???? really?)
