I found a new challenge blog that is christmas all year round!! LOVE IT! ha ha ha...don't get me started about how much I love christmas again! Anyways, the blog challenge is the Merry Monday Challenge. Anyways, I am going to try and participate in this one a few times as well! Lovin' all the challenges I'm finding!! Anyways, clean and simple is difficult for me, I like to have as little blank space as possible...and that goes for anything i'm doing whether it be scrapbooking or cardmaking! ha ha ha...anyways, I think I did okay with this one. I decided to get out my dusty brayer! i haven't used my brayer barely at all!! So...that was a challenge in itself! ha ha ha...anyways, onto my card, I used the snowflakes from the snow flurries bigz die and placed them on my first edition dsp and then brayered over it with cherry cobbler ink. I like how it came out...It looks nice, clean and simple! ha ha ha...I think I might like emboss resist with the snowflake soiree stamp set a bit better. As it has a bit more details but is still very clean and simple, but I am waiting on my set from the 2012 holiday mini to arrive at my door...about a week away still, I knew I should have preordered but oh well! When I get it, one of the first things that I am going to try is emboss resist with the same idea. I think it may be a stamp-a-stack card!! ha ha ha...of course! anyways...this is my card.

I love how the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punch layers so beautifully with the 1" Circle Punch! It looks soo cute! So anyways, this is as clean as simple as I can do it I think! ha ha ha... Anyways, thanks for checking me out!!
