For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by National Simplicity Day.  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I selected CAS design, monochromatic palette, stitching, geometric shapes, and birthday theme from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

What better way to create a quick card than to let the designer paper do the talking! The lovely blue delft tile design is from the In Good Taste collection. With paper this pretty all that is needed is to add a sentiment!

The beautiful texture on the card base is courtesy of the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder.  A double bow created from denim ribbon and a single rhinestone are the only accents needed.
