Celebrate New Beginnings

Less Is More Challenge #445 begins today. We are challenged to make a Clean and Simple card that features the colors pale blue and yellow.
I love this color combination, and immediately know that I wanted to use this floral image. I channeled my inner Izzy Scrap, and decided to make my card square. I stamped and clear embossed the floral image, colored it with Zigs, and die cut it. I lightly stenciled the left side of the card, stamped and clear embossed the sentiment, and popped the die cut floral piece with foam tape. I will use it as a retirement card for a dear friend who is starting a new chapter. I wish her every happiness, good health  and great adventures.

Please head over to the Less Is More Blog and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us to share your creations. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple. See challenge guidelines on the Less Is More Blog.

My favorite style is CAS, but I have grown into it. I used to love lots of layers and embellishments, but now I appreciate the "less is more" mentality. It's a big challenge to me to make a big artistic statement with a clean and simple design.
