TBS DT: BSC #7 - CAS Sketch

Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had beautiful weather which lead to yard work and a day trip to Annapolis, Maryland. It's such a picturesque historic town!

This week at the Beary Scrap we're trying to keep it simple with our CAS (Clean and Simple) Sketch Challenge... Oh my, this was difficult for me! My "simplicity" was only one stamp layer (really!) and no embellishment beyond the sketch. Ok, I admit that I've failed in the CAS department... *sheesh* The design team is going to fire me - LOL!

I've used Pink Paislee's Queen Bee papers. I really like the yellow/gray combination! The twill ribbon is also Queen Bee, called "Ribbon Pleats". The package has 2 - 12x12 ribbons, one in this yellow color and one in gray. I measured out the amount of pleat I needed and then pulled the stitching from the remaining ribbon. It too a little water spritz and iron to straighten it out, but I love the end result.

    Gorgeous card, Susan! Love the color combo and your coloring is fab - as always! I also love all the beautiful embellishments and the ribbon is ... *sigh*...adorable!
    It's really perfect in every way (even though I would never think of this card as 'clean and simple' *giggles*)
