you make me happy...

Hello!!!  Here with a card that I made for a couple of challenges:  Less is More Theme week (inspired by Singing in the Rain) and Viva La Verve (sketch). 

When I saw the new LIM challenge I immediately thought of the Verve set Rain or Shine.  The song "Singing in the Rain" always makes me think of umbrellas!  I paired the set up with some fun Stampin Up! designer paper aptly named "Sunshine & Sprinkles" and Viva la Verve sketch #3.  To CAS-ify the sketch I created the bottom layer by embossing my cardstock with a Spellbinders long plain rectangle die and used only white cardstock to provide as much white space as I could.   The rest of the layers were kept equally simple with no matting in sight.  The only embellishment is the little umbrella cut from some of the patterned paper.   I think this card proves that you can have layers and keep your card clean and simple!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; DP:  Stampin Up!; Stamps:  Verve Rain or Shine; Dies:  Spellbinders plain long rectangle & plain circle dies; My Favorite Things fishtail flag stax die
