CLEAN & SIMPLE CHALLENGE

 for their first challenge for 2012 is having a "Clean and Simple" challenge, which spotlights a sentiment. Also this blog is a NON stamping blog which means you can not use a stamped image as the main focus on your card.

I incorporated into my card for the matted background a piece made using the bargello technique (details of which can be found on the Splitcoast Stampers site under Resources )

SUPPLIES USED :
Purple and green cardstock
butterfly 3d sticker
Wording from quotes book (HOTP)
Patterned scrapbook papers
Nestabilities die

Come take the challenge over at Friendship's Garden blog too !!
