Clean and Simple, part Une

Hello Scrappy Friends. I hope you are enjoying your day so far. Ok, raise your hand if you feel you spend a lot of time on a card. (Insert me raising my hand, lol). When I began making cards, I didn't know better. hehehe. I had that beginner style and I didn't care for ribbon, flowers or any type of embellishments but with time that all passed. And so my love of embellishments grew and my card making time grew a wee bit out of control. So I began wanting to try to make quick cards. I was always amazed, still am, that all these gals were cranking out these amazing cards rather quickly. So I think its to time to go back and re-evaluate my methods. Once I do that and find my niche, I believe I will my win my inner card making battle (which I'm currently losing).

But in the meantime, I've decided to try to alternate in creating heavily embellished/paper cards and clean and simple cards. As much as I love this clean look, I also love the other kind as well and I don't want to give it up completely. 

Ive also decided to do a series of different CAS cards with my Creeper Crew Creeping Kit. This way I get to play with my kit and find my path to simple gorgeous cards. hehehe. So I hope you come back to check out my series. There will be 7 in total (as there is 7 cute creepers), this one being #1.

Thanks for stopping by/commenting!

I will be playing along:
Wee Memories - Stamp Something. A Spoon Full of Sugar - Things with Wings. Lily Pad - Embossing (I used dry embossing). I was inspired by Peachy Keen Stamps - Sketch 52. I moved a few of the elements around but they are all there. 
Ps. Don't forget to check out Simply Betty Stamps and The Altered Alice

This post made me chuckle, as I was struggling with the same thing. If you check out my card for today's PK challenge, you will see what I mean. I think you did a great job with your card by adding texture for visual interest. Thanks for joining the PK challenge!
