Clean & Layered

Happy Sunday All.....
Before I go into my project for today, I just wanted to "remind" you
that tomorrow is my "debut" as a designer with "The Shabby Tea Room".
I hope you visit there and check it out and join in our challenge!!

Also don't forget I have blog candy that some lucky person will receive...
you can sign up on the post above this one!

Our NEW challenge "Flutterbys" begins tomorrow , too (3/17)
at Classy cards 'n Such...would love to have YOU join us!!

Also, there is still plenty of time to join in our challenge I am hosting this week
at "The Sisterhood"...I would love to see you there!!

And last...I had a nice surprise this morning as my Easter card in the post
below won at the Cheery Lynns Designs blog..thank you CLD....
yah a shopping spree...every girls dream!

Now, onto today's card.....
I decided to join in this weeks challenge (ending soon) at "The Card Concept"
using the inspiration photo below.

I choose to go with the "Clean & Layered" look, which is:
Clean lines
Lots of Layers (mine has 7)
Designer paper~Embossing
Clean & fresh looking
Some colored images
White Space

Every item on my card came out of my stash of already, cut, stamped, colored
 and just waiting to be used!!  
I think it came together pretty good...all 7 layers!!

I also found this cute challenge "Cupcake Inspirations" I am entering 
using their inspiration picture below!!

Ok, that's it for now...don't forget to wear green tomorrow!!

I just love how you've layered this and arranged all your parts. I HAVE to dig into my parts box more often. I was doing so well for a while there.
