Kraftin' Kimme Challenge #89 - Clean and Simple!

Happy Saturday KKS fans...

 I am hosting this week's challenge and I decided
to make this challenge easy on you all...Or harder, depending on
your point of view...I would like you to make a card that is

"Clean and Simple"

That's right people...NO EMBELLISHMENTS!!!
No ribbon, no buttons, no brads, no flowers or blingy things...
You may however use a technique like sewing or embossing
if you chose and if your flowers are made of paper...them too!

So... Here is my card....

I thought that for this card I wanted the image to stand out and I 
thought that the very gorgeous and sexy Brigitte,one of my all
time favorites of the Moonlight Whispers range would be perfect!!

The papers I used are from Kaiser Craft's 61/2 Paper Pad called
Velvet Ensemble. The border punch from Fiskars. As you can
see I kept my card very simple and just let Brigitte do her stuff....

I coloured her in with my Prisma pencils and paper pieced her towels
to match the paper I used. The sentiment "Spoil Yourself" comes
with Brigitte when you buy her as well as another sentiment
"Take Me Away".

I finished off the card by stamping the inside with a co-ordinating
stamp of  some shampoo and soap that also comes with Brigitte
when you buy her and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from
Kimmie's Everyday Sentiment Set.

 Now, please don't forget about Kimmie's

I just want to thank you, Donna! You've taken the heat off me as being the "mean" challenge hostess (handstitching) with this one!!! The great thing about your cards, though, is that they're so beautifully colored and thought out, you don't need a bunch of embellishments to make 'em look fabulous. This is gorgeous, and I love the lines around the main image box. I always forget about techniques like that!
