Try Something New

Hiya folks!

Hope you are all well out there?
What with the strange weather up here the coughs, colds and flu's have hit DD House.
Have had kiddies off school (one in bed as I type), hubby with a sore head and throat, and wet/cold doggie walkies (more to come today with the flipping rain coming down).
Plus I noticed one of the tiles on our new roof has slipped already - note to hubby - get on that phone!!

On a happier note, it's time for a new theme at the Delicious Doodles Challenge, and this time we want you to try something new. Doesn't matter if it isn't perfect we want to see it peeps!

I have cheated a bit with my creation. I haven't exactly tried a new technique, can't afford to go buying stuff I will never use again. So I opted for a style I don't do very much of. Clean and Simple! I really don't use this much at all, normally I have loads of layers going on, with froo-froo and bling here and there, so it made a change for me not to do that this time!

This was so quick and easy, can't think why I don't do it more often.
All I did was design a simple layout on the compy with a frame, followed by my Butterfly Bliss image in a border (which was already coloured up and scanned in from another project some weeks ago), add text, printed it out, stick to a base card and add some gems in the corners. Simples!

And there you have it! No foofy layers, ribbons, pop-ups, charms, or whatever.
Must admit though, it was really hard not to keep adding stuff, it looks very empty!

Hope you can join us this time round folks!

Some challenges I am entering:

Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Anything Goes - Things with Wings
Creative Craft - Anything Goes

Really pretty card. TBH I sometimes find that the C&S cards are more tricky than those with loads of faffing as there's no room to cover up mistakes ;D

Hope everyone recovers in your household.

I love it Teri but I know what you mean about not having all sorts of layers, textures and fru fru!!! Maybe I will try a clean and simple as well since I have only ever done one CAS in my life!
