Clean and Simple!

I was feeling like trying to make a "Clean and Simple" Card this weekend, especially since I needed a card for 70 year old man, member of our church. Since he has been a farmer all his life I decided I MUST pick something farmish and nothing more perfect that the new SU Farm Life Set, don't you think?

Last week I got my Spellbinders Labels Eight and was dying to use them, so this was a perfect excuse, love them! Since this card was for a man, I didn't want any ribbon or staff like that, so I went with hardware and brads. I love this brads that look like little screws. I used SU Kraft CS for the base card, SU Chocolate Chip and Naturals White for the image, which I stamped with Memento Brown and the message I stamped with Color Box Chestnut Roan. I used the same ink with my blender pen to colour the image and on the cards background. Sponging was done with Chocolate Chip Ink and Chestnut Roan. To make the image "pop" I used SU dimensionals.

OK. that's all for this weekend! Enjoy and don't forget to leave a comment, I love to hear what you think of my work!
