Clean and Simple

I found a new shopping site recently (got some really lovely 6" paper pads and fantastic service!) and with it a new challenge site, too: Claudia & Company.  Their challenge #80 is Clean and Simple.  We all know that this is a real challenge for me, as I love to layer on as much as I can fit on a card lately, but this style is one I need to learn to do, so here is my entry:


I knew I wanted to do something with lots of clean space and my eyes lit on my silhouette stamps.  You know me, I had to get a little bit of pattern in there, so I chose my favorite music paper, which is a creamy tone and black.   There was my palette, and I even had a sentiment that went with it.  

supplies: cream and black cardstock, The Paper Studio "Textured Cream Sheet Music", versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, Hero Arts CG271 Large Blossom, CL342 Everyday Sayings
