Pure & Simple

I actually love the simplicity of this card. I really think that the minimal style is more me, but I get swept away with the requirements of some challenges and I don't always like what I end up with.
Whereas I can appreciate the work and skill that goes into lots of the more complicated styles, they seem more like works of art rather than greetings cards. I guess the best thing is to do a little of lots of styles and that should please a whole lot of people (hopefully).
Well this card is for Cute Card Thurday's Challenge #66 'Wheely good fun'. The stipulation was that there should be wheels on the card.
This cute stamp from Stampin Up has wheels and I love it. It's from a set with elongated bits and pieces on the images... great isn't it! The sentiment is from my new bunch of stamps from My Sentiments Exactly. Cut & embossed with Nesties.
Have a great weekend!


  1. I prefer your simple cards too Chrissie, but like you say, it's good to try various styles and techniques - keeps the creative juices flowing!

    Fabby card


  2. I have been tempted to buy that stamp set many times, specifically for that stamp! I love your card; the embossed squares frame the buggy so nicely and I think it is stunning. My style is more simplistic too, though I too appreciate the "works of art" that others are able to accomplish with many layers, bits, and bobs. Beautifully done, my friend :)

  3. Beautiful card, love the image and the elegant simplicity.

  4. This simple little card is just super. Simplicity you are very good at! Love it! Eileen
