Mo's Challenge # 117

No Frou-Frou, Please!

For Mo's Challenge this week it's "Clean and Simple." We are to use one of Mo's images and keep the embellishments to a bare minimum. Her images are wonderful enough to shine on their own, so it shouldn't be too hard!

This card uses Mo's "Lacie", and she's all done up in ice cream colors!

I did keep the extras simple...just a few tiny flower brads and a grosgrain bow, so I think I'm legal! LOL! The striped DP was a gift from a friend who's an SU! demonstrator.  I believe it's from the Sell-a-Bration catalog.

Tools: Copics, Cuttlebug  with Nesties

Papers: SU! Gable Green, Cool Caribbean, Groovy Guava, Neenah smooth white, SU! DP

Embellishments: Mini brads, Small flower brads, Grosgrain ribbon

Now it's your turn to put aside all your pretty lace, frilly ribbons, gorgeous flowers, bright baubles and beads, grab one of Mo's images and make something simple and beautiful  for Mo's Challenge!

I love it when you visit!
