I Need A KISS:)

If you are blowing me kisses right now, thank you.  However, that's not the kind of "kiss" I'm talking about.  I needed to make a Keep It Simple Silly card.  I tried to keep it more simple than this, but I just couldn't help adding a few more things.  I then tried to make another card that was simple and I hated it.  I'm going to try it again though....maybe:) Why is simple so hard?

 I made this for the Color Throwdown this week.  The colors were Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery, and Taken With Teal.  I promise those are the colors I used for the Emboss Resisted image.  I cut the image out using a one of the Labels nestabilities and left it in the die while I rubbed each area with color.  This was done on Glossy white cardstock.  The layer below that is reverse embossed with my cuttlebug and then the corners were punched with a Fiskars corner punch.  I added tiny pearl details to all the corners too.  It's hard to see but the base of the card has Micro Pearl Ex rubbed all around the edges for added sparkle.

What's In It?
Stamps: Unity June KOTM
Ink: Taken with teal, Pure Pomegranate, Cert Celery, Versamarker, Versamark

Paper: Glossy White, Whisper White
Other: Cuttlebug EF, Labels, Nestie, pearl ex, kaiser pearls, sponge, white EP, white satin ribbon (Michael's), glue dot, dimensionals

I should have another post tomorrow.  I think it may be "hairy" if you know what I mean:)

See you then!

I definitely wouldn't call that simple, elegant yes, but it has lots of elegant detail. I too struggle with simple, but my creations are still more simple looking than your beauties! Love this card by the way.
