A Simple, Clean, Monochromatic Card

An ALL WHITE card...hmmmm. I think that is about as monochromatic as I can get. Does make it really easy to decide which papers "go" together!

To make the card I used a textured cardstock that already has a stripe embossed on it. I used a smaller piece of that same paper in my Cuttlebug, embossed it with the swirl folder. I used some plain white paper to make the flower then put lots of Stickles on the petals, but they don't show up in the pictures :( . I used 2 scalloped circle dies (Spellbinders) and my little Quickutz "Daisy" die 3x to make the flower. All the layers are held together with Glue Dots. The little tag is also from a Spellbinders die (Labels #15) but I put it in the die again to make it shorter. The tiny hole in the tag is from my new hand-held hole punch that I picked up last week at the thrift store for about $ .59 ...I love a bargain!! The button on the flower is from my stash. And the sentiment is just from a generic stamp set I have. I wish I had written down the brand names before getting rid of the packaging!

I am entering this one in just 2 challenges:

Please let me know what you think of this it TOO simple?

Oh no, this is definitely not 'too' simple, in fact it's just right! Lovely take on the inspiration!
