Here is a card I made for a Clean and Simple Challenge. It was a color challenge (Aqua, Coral, Yellow and White). I had recently gotten MFT’s Retro Square Die-namics border die and thought it would be perfect for a clean and simple card. I cut one strip out of Berrylicious cardstock, one out of Cameo Coral (Stampin’ Up!) cardstock.

The strips were adhered to the left side of the card base, a 4″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded….just because I LOVE to do that.

Three daisies were cut with MFT’s Upsy Daisy Die-namic dies out of Solar White cardstock for the petals, and yellow Bazzill paper for the flower centers. The flowers were adhered over the retro strips. Three Rhinestones from the Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones were added to the borders, were the two strips overlap.

A sentiment from MFT’s My Favorite Sentiments was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink to the lower right corner. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl next to the biggest Daisy finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
