Better Together

I used to hate clean and simple cards.  I struggled with them, because I always wanted to add "just one more thing".  As time has progressed, I'm finding I like them more and more.  The simplicity can really help to highlight a particular image or sentiment.  

This sweet and simple card, features the Bowled Over stamp set, and the Flannel Life background stamp from Fun Stampers Journey.

For today's card, I stamped a panel with the Flannel Life background stamp, and then cut a strip of the red gingham created.  I added a strip of Black Licorice card stock, that had my sentiment stamped and heat embossed in white.  Then I added my fussy cut images that were colored with Color Burst pencils.

The whole card took about 15 minutes (including coloring), and looks adorable!  Though I'm still not sure what is in the bowl.  I was going for cereal, but, depending on how the image was colored, it could be ramen, or spaghetti-os.

And speaking of the Better Together on the sentiment, the FSJ annual convention is coming up, with the theme of Better Together.  There is still time to sign up as an FSJ coach, and register for convention if you'd like to join us in Phoenix this year.  I'd love to have you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
