CD Sunday - Clean and Simple - chosen by Jenny

Happy Easter Sunday to everyone.  I hope you are all enjoying a good weekend.  It is quietish here but I am continuing to empty the boxes and put the crafty contents into new homes.  I have been ruthless and thrown away, given or sold many items now surplus to requirements. 
Thank you all for the tremendous response to my chosen Challenge - 'Sentiments'.  I am going to have to spend quite a while to-ing and fro-ing amongst all the blogs to choose my Top 3.

This new challenge - Clean and Simple - chosen by Jenny is a great challenge.  I have made a card I am very pleased with - in fact I think it is my favourite make so far this year.  Here it is:

I used Ooh La La CD - 'Carnival of colour' for the image which I printed on glossy photo paper.  I used a black mat to pick out the black on the poppies and the second layer of the butterfly. I used my favourite square white card and together with the way the glossy poppies sing out makes this my favourite make of the year.

Please join in with us and I will see you soon.


  1. I hope you have a very happy Easter,
    Beautiful card less is more and it's a gorgeous image.

  2. I love your CAS card Carol, the poppies are wonderful and the butterfly a perfect embellishment to go with them.

    Have a wonderful Easter what ever you're doing.
