A Quick Clean & Simple

I don’t know about you, but my clean and simple cards can end up clean and complicated!  So many times, I complete one and think to myself, “Now, HOW is this considered clean and simple when it just took me over an hour to put it together?!”  Does that sound like you too?

Today was not one of those days and I am so happy to report that this card went together in ten minutes!  Yes, that’s right!  Ten minutes.  How’s that for genuine clean and simple?!

Just so you know, I am still recovering from the holiday weekend.  Too many late nights with family and then easing back into the “daily routines!”  Whew!  I’m slowly getting some mojo back, so hope to be back to my usual self here within the next couple days!  Until then, thanks for being patient!  🙂

    WOW! Melissa, this is stunning!! It may have only taken 10 minutes to create but looks like it took much longer! CAS and perfection!

    I totally know what you mean about CAS cards sometimes taking forever! Glad this one came together quickly for you – I love the black and white with touches of red.

    I had to chuckle at your post because I am the same way with CAS cards…mine usually have 10 layers on them. Haha! Your card is gorgeous, Melissa! Love the clean design and how you slightly tilted the main image. The little pops of sparkle are the perfect touch. 🙂
