Plain and Simple at Totally Gorjuss

Saturday again!
But I am working today so I hope Mr BLOGGER behaves and does not add White block to everything today!

We have a new challenge for you over at Totally Gorjuss

The theme this week is
Plain and Simple
We are sponsored by the lovely Heathers Hobbie Haven

For my card I have cut the lovely fern die from a square of white and then added a scrap of green behind, the text is from the cuttle-bug font set Olivia from another off cut of the same green, I decided that I would also emboss some lines using a scoring board to give texture but not colour. will show you how I got a neat square another time too! I added some tiny gems and that is it, Plain and simple!
I am really pleased how this one has turned out.

Here are some challenges I am playing along with:

Clearly Inspired - Clean and Simple
Wags 'n Whiskers - Be Thankful
Auds Sentiments - "thanks" in it
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything goes
Sassy Studio Designs - No patterned paper- Opps missed the deadline
Shelly's Images -  Use scraps to create your card

So I hope you can come and join us at 

My teamies have some AWESOME inspiration for you!

  1. This is gorgeous. I love the CAS design with the tiny gems added to the leaf.

    hugs Sue

  2. Great card, and I love that you've cut out the die from the white. When I looked at it at first I thought you'd stuck the green on the front, but it looks great and much cleaner to put the green behind the white.
    Lovely simple card

  3. This is gorgeous and very creative. Love the colours and its a great design. Wishing you a wonderful creative weekend.

  13. Samantha this card is a true reflection of what CAS card style should be. I love the texture of the embossing but the leaf and sentiment really are the stars of the show. The sentiment is so crisp but yet fun. Thanks for blessing us with this creation at Clearly iStamp challenge #64.


I really appreciate your comments thank you! hugs Samantha :0)
