It Is Not Commonplace
I came across the teensy tiny little quote regarding what I think clean and simple is all about:
"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple...that's creativity." ~ Charles Mingus
Would you agree?
This post is a teensy tiny little bit late too, because of Blogger's downtime, but better late than never!
What a phenomenal turnout for the first CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, thank you so much for all that played along. I think you are really going to enjoy this week's challenge as well:
Check out the details and amazing, I mean, truly amazing, design team crations at the CAS-ual Fridays blog. There is a fabulous prize up for grabs from Denami Design!
I started this card by cutting both the cardstock base and a white panel to size. I ran the white panel through the embossing machine that had been inked with brown. I then wrapped the panel with some lovely twine and finished the card with fabulous Boutique Buttons from Denami Design and a sentiment as well.
