Fall to Friend...

The simplest things are often the truest. -Richard Bach

I am Really enjoying the CAS and FTL (Clean and Simple and Fall-to Layout) sketches on the clean&simple blog! I think we could all use a break from the distressed, ribbon, button, bling covered creations we all love. It is like a citrus sorbet between courses...cleans the palette and allows us to enjoy the details of the next card that much it helps keep your mojo muscles flexed when you don't have time for a more intensive project.

For this card I used FTL #35 and pulled out my new Whipper Snapper Anna Wight set Friendly Expressions. The paper is from Bella Blvd. I added some dots to the flowers with my gel pen just geive it some texture.

Friendly Expressions (Whipper Snapper)
Roundabout, Easter Grass (Bella Blvd,) Close to Cocoa (SU,) Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Rich Cocoa (Memento,) Copic Markers
Misc: Twill Ribbon,
White Gel Pen, Square Scalloped Nestabilities (Used 2 to make a rectangle)

Thanks for stopping by!
