Clean and Simple 159

I am a couple weeks behind on the Clean and Simple challenge, how nice they keep them open for 2 weeks for people like me!!  They have 3 sketch challenges open right now...check them out HERE. Here's mine and the sketch:
and the sketch:
I made my card with inspiration from Jenny...she is so creative and makes such amazing, wonderful and beautiful cards...this is the one that inspired me(you can find it on THIS post). I'm not sure that I like MY colors too well...but used a Papertrey Ink die for the flowers.  I made 6 flowers and placed them where I wanted them and put adhesive on them on the paper.  I then placed the die OVER the cut flowers and  die cut each one out.  I placed polka dotted paper behind each cut out and used stick on dots  covered with adhesive and then covered with cut out circles of more polka dotted paper(used the owl punch...the middle eye circle for the cut outs) and put them in each flower.  I used some seam binding and a sentiment from Hero Arts(versamark with white embossing powder).  Popped up on white bazzill card...yeah...I beat the deadline!!   Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day:)!!


  1. I love your color choices here. I could see sending a card like this to my girlfriends who aren't into the girly-girl pink and hearts type stuff. It has a simple elegance to it.

  2. Oh Lisa I love these colours, this is the perfect sketch to use the negative cuts on. So happy we inspire each other :)

  5. Hi , I came across your blog while visiting another one. You make the most beautifull cards! Simple and clean, I enjoyed visiting your blog.
    Kind regards, Annnie

  6. I'm a big fan of Jenny's too Lisa and I love your take on her design. I didn't realise Clean and Simple kept the sketch challenges open for two weeks - thanks for the info!
