This week, Joanne is hosting our monthly Clean and Simple challenge, and she has selected a theme of “Thank You”.  Remember, clean and simple cards are characterized by minimal layers and embellishments; they have plenty of open “white” space; and they are simple and uncluttered.  I went with a simple, elegant, and ever-so-easy card which I hope you enjoy!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
If you have limited time for stamping, then this is the card for you!  The definite “wow” factor comes from the luscious Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper. I used the white side of one of the leafy patterned panels, and matted it onto Very Vanilla cardstock. This was adhered to the Whisper White card base using dimensionals.

A few gold metallic pearls, gold leaves (from the specialty paper), and a white bow accent the sentiment.  Easy peasy and oh-so-elegant!  And remember,  you can always switch out the sentiment for whatever occasion you might need.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what you create!
