Red & Green. Clean & Simple. I have been mulling over the Paper Players challenge for a few days in between teaching a couple stamping classes (which I loved) and dealing with the flood coming from inside my pantry wall at 3 a.m. (which I didn't love. Yes, it has been quite a week!). I can do red & green, but what is Clean & Simple really? I tried to think "Clean & Simple" as I was arranging and rearranging pieces, but my card was crying out for more. I like layers. I like details. I like the little extras.
So, here is my Red and Green card, which depending on your definition may or may not be Clean & Simple.
The picture I took here is not the greatest. I didn't realize until I uploaded it that you can't really see the 3 tiny pearls in the middle of the poinsettia, and because I used markers to color the stamp, it is not as brilliant of an image as usual. I just adore the buttons from the Holly Berry Bouquet Buttons in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
