Clean and Simple...

 
Good morning everyone!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Holiday and that you are all well and happy.  We had a very quiet day here as the kids were busy elsewhere and it was just my husband and I for the day.  We had some much needed rest and we are now ready to face another week of work and hopefully a little play. 
 
This morning I want to share another clean and simple card I have made using very few adornments.  I mostly just wanted the image to have the spotlight on this card.  So there is no fancy paper, but I did use a little ribbon and a few purchased flowers.  I colored this little darling with Ranger Distress ink and then matted her onto some blue scraps of card stock from my stash.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I cut a Marianne corner die and used ink to add a little color to it.  And that is it!
 
I hope you have a wonderful day planned.  We are quite cool here this morning ... in the 30's again.  The next couple of days are supposed to be this way with a chance of frost on a couple of nights.  This is a normal thing for East Tennessee, and so mostly everyone waits until later in the month to put in their gardens, as early crops sometimes get bitten around here. 
 
Well this is about it for me this morning.  I hope you have a good day and that life is good to you!  And as always, remember to "Breathe"!

Glenda, your coloring techniques with the distress inks are just beautiful! After the Creative Chemistry online class, I've bought some reinkers and I'm trying to learn how - not quite there yet! You are my inspiration on this technique.
