Here's my take on this week's challenge... a clean and simple card...

I told ya it was simple! I created a 5 x 7 card with lavendar card stock, using a corner rounder on the bottom edges. I used the butterfly image from Our Daily Bread Designs' Happy Birthday set to stamp random butterflies on the card stock with Versamark Watermark ink. After drying, I stamped the sentiment where desired and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. After shaking off the excess, I used my heat gun to complete the embossed look. I tied some seam binding at the top (using a double bow) and attached a silver safety pin with two pearls added for interest. So easy!!

S - Safety Pin & Seam Binding
P - Purple & Pearls
R - Rounded Corners
I - Ink
G - Gem
