WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE WWC 99

Watercooler Wednesday WWC99 - Marsha's Clean & Simple (CAS) Make it With Hearts Challenge
http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/

The rules are simple for our Clean And Simple challenge.  Show lots of open space, use minimal layers and use minimal embellishments.  The Watercooler Artists have given you many great examples of what our Clean And Simple challenge looks like.

What a nice break!   My card for this challenge is Valentine's!  I used some punches and made Valentine cut-out's and then used some beautiful dsp for a liner.  I love the new Banner Framelits and the Stamp set that goes with it.   The card remained CAS but elegant.

Wow, have you checked out the Design Team cards?   Each one is a work of art and they are so inspirational.   I didn't have a lot of time this week, so I thought I would do a simpler fold card using the Circle Thinlits Dies.  I just love this stamp set.   There are so many ways to use it.
