A post at midnight on Wednesday can only mean one thing... yes, it's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps! This week, it's Addicted to... Clean and Simple, so anything CAS goes! If you'd asked me just a few months ago to make a clean and simple card, I'd have panicked beyond belief. But now I just take it in my stride. I have learned so much from having a go at CAS... card layout, design, colours... so why not challenge yourself if this isn't your normal cup of tea? And if it is, well, you can show us all how it's done!
Here's my card:
It was ever so straightforward to make. The base is Riding Hood Red, a paler red with a vague hint of pink in it, I think. I rounded the corners on the bottom of this and my layer of Whisper White. I ran the white card through my Big Shot with my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and attached a strip of Twitterpated paper. All that was left to do was arrange these pretty butterflies and add a few rhinestones to finish.
Card: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Paper: Twitterpated Designer Series Paper
Other: Embosslits Beautiful Wings, BigShot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, rhinestones

I might even throw in the odd picture of a dog (don't tell Socks!) for you dog lovers out there! Today's cat picture is a funny cartoon mapping the kitty brain:
