Not So Clean and Simple After All

I started this card with the Clean and Simple Stamping FTL 147, but it ended up being a little fancier than I intended. The papers are from an old Making Memories pad and Cherry Cobbler. I punched the fleur-de-lis with an EK Success punch and layered them on a Nestie circle. I searched for the right color ribbon in my stash and thought I was out of luck until I found this bit in my scrap box. It was the perfect length for ruffling (even if it is a little crooked) :). The sentiment is from a clear set that I got a long time ago and no longer have the name of.

Hope you are having a safe and happy holiday weekend! Thanks for looking!

I think this still TOTALLY counts as Clean and Simple! It's amazing how easily you could turn this into a Christmas card too! Thank you so much for the nice comment you left on my welcome post at the My Mind's Eye Blog! I was so touched by the overwhelmingly warm welcome!

Love the ruffled ribbon, and isn't nice when you find exactly what you need in your scrap box?

Gorgeous card Melissa. Love the red and white. The fleur-de-lis punched image looks fabulous and I love the ruffled ribbon. :o)
