Your Old School...

Another clean and simple card today.   The last few days I have not felt very creative and when that happens I tend to go with what works for me best... clean and simply.  Oh... I just LOVE white space!   For this card I used the color combo from CR84FN of Aqua, Red and White.   I almost passed this combo up, but in the end I just couldn't resist using it for my card.   However, I am getting my card in with just a few hours to spare!    I'm also going to put this into the challenge over at Claudia & Company since it is a CAS challenge and I'm not one to pass up anything that has to do with CAS. 



I used the really fun Hero Arts cling set My Type.  I stamped the typewriter using SU!'s Taken With Teal and trimmed it out.  The sentiment was stamped with PTI's Pure Poppy.  Some Pure Poppy buttons were sewn to the typewrite, as well.  I tied Pure Poppy double stitched ribbon (I think my most favorite ribbon to tie) around the white card piece and then the typewrited was adhered using adhesive foam squares.  The entire piece was then adhere to the card base. 

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; SU! Taken With Teal; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink: PTI Pure Poppy & SU! Taken with Teal; Buttons:  PTI Pure Poppy; Ribbon:  PTI Pure Poppy

Those colors are so pretty, Rosie and you've used them perfectly on this beautiful CAS card! I love the white space too and you make it look so easy to just leave it that way. . .it's definitely more difficult for me to do!
