Another Simple Card...

This time for the current Waltzingmouse sketch challenge.  I often wish I was the kind of cardmaker who can pile all kinds of lovely trims and bits on a card and make it work, but I'm not.  Nothing wrong with being someone who tends more toward the clean and simple end of cardmaking, though.  While this card is simple I did try to step outside that box and add some trims that I normally don't add, like the crocheted ribbon and the little medallion used on the card, as well.  I'm not completely certain that I like the bow on the card, but card was rather plain looking without it.  There isn't alot of stamping on this card and no sentiment, but that's okay I think.    



Thanks for peeking....

This is beautiful, Rosie! And I like the bow! The stripes and dots play off each other and the lace trim is the perfect touch!
