What a Wonderful World

Who knew a card this simple could be so difficult to come up with! I've been struggling creatively lately with all the stresses at home so I knew I wanted to keep today's Color My Heart challenge card simple. The color combo is Sorbet and Pacifica, both from Close to my Heart. When I laid these papers side by side I thought southwest! But I don't have any southwest themed stamps!!!! Okay, let's really step outside the box and do something Christmasy! Yeah, that didn't work out either. Well I already had this Jingle Borders strip white embossed so I knew I wanted to put it to use. "Keep it simple stupid" I kept saying over and over again. So I pulled out the sentiment stamp set Because of You and a few gems and my card fell right into place. Perseverance, never give up, is my new motto. Now let's see what you can do with our fun challenge over at Color My Heart.

I love your card, Linda! I especially like the white embossed side border which jazzes up the card. You succeeded in creating a beautiful clean and simple card which any recipient would love. Thanks for the inspiration!

You've had a productive week, Linda! Love scrolling through all your cards. This one is another CAS that really just "works." Keeping it simple with the strong border, challenge colours plus white and a little bling lets your sentiment shine.
