No Fear for Clean and Simple

Clean and Simple cards are actually a little difficult for me!  I have to really hold myself back from adding lots of embellishments.  I try though.... maybe one of these days I'll get the CLEAN and SIMPLE part down.   

Here is my attempt today:

Today's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is create a Clean and Simple Card, while over at CAS-ual Friday their challenge was to add a little bit of silver to a clean and simple card.  So, I thought I'd might as well use the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping and create something for all three!

For this card I used a bit of paper from the Later Sk8r (X7167B) paper pack and some silver paper from the Black and Grey Glitter Paper (Z1829).  I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut a couple gears in the silver paper.  I have to say, this glitter paper cuts like butter on my cricut! And, I really like that it doesn't leave glitter everywhere!  The background stamp and "No Fear" is from the stamp set that is exclusive to the Later Sk8r Workshop on the Go kit (G1057).

When I finished the card I kept thinking it needed something else but I forced myself to stop.  

Here is the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping:

Thanks for stopping by!
Remember!
Friday is March 1st and that means another Stamp of the Month Blog hop!
I hope to see you back on Friday!
