Clean and Simple Fun!

Finally, I am back with a new card. Things have been a wee bit crazy over here and I hope you'll bear with me until I will be able to post more regularly again.

In the meantime, I'd like to leave you with this lovely
Dirty Bird from Hambo's very latest Spring Designs. I fell in love with this stamp the moment I saw it and know that it's one that I will prolly never, ever part with - ever!

After I coloured this cutie with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol I cut it out, then fiddled and fussed with all kinds of matching printed papers. I tried this and that, I even cut coordinating ribbon and everything. But in the end I felt that it would all distract too much from the lil' bird and simply 3D mounted it on my card. Yup, I liked the design the most on good ol' clean card stock. Sometimes, simple just works, I suppose. What do you think?

I agree with Monica... your designs are always fabulous...whether you have patterned paper or not. Your coloring is again, AMAZING!

WOW! When I saw this image over at Hambo, I thought it might be the one to get me to invest in more "cute" and your darling card is really an arm twister. So glad you shared this one.

This chic is soooo cute..and yes sometimes the simplest of cards are the best.
