Card Design: Scribbles Designs Challenge #26--Clean & Simple
 It is time for our new challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog.

This time around, for Challenge #26, the theme is Clean & Simple There are many different kinds of card making styles and clean and simple is one of them.  However, not everyone sees clean and simple the same way.  For some it might mean an uncluttered design with lots of white space, for others it might be a very simple layout but with a few embellishments here and there.  For the purposes of our challenge this month, we'd like to see a very simple layout with either a minimum of embellishments or none at all, allowing the focus of your creation to be a well coloured image.  Bring on the white space and show us what you've got.

In order to participate in our challenges you DO NOT NEED TO USE A SCRIBBLES DESIGNS IMAGE on your project but you must follow the monthly theme and the other rules that have been established for our particular challenge blog.  You can find them, along with the prize information, listed in the right hand sidebar of the challenge blog.  This challenge will end at 9pm PST on March 14th.
You can purchase your Scribbles Designs images HERE and there is a free image over on the challenge blog as well to help get you started.  Also, be sure to check out the special Freebie Friday posts as it is another great way to build your Scribbles Designs collection.
To help inspire you, I have created a simple, love you card.  I've decided that I want to be giving the hubs more cards this year, just because, and this month's challenge provided me with a great opportunity to get started.  So, on cue...





Here are my card and details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything important...

Digital Image Details: 
  • Hand Cut Heart:  This cool and funky heart shape is one of the freebies currently available on the blog.  Click on the name, to head to its location in the store.
  • I paper pieced this image with the four papers available in my Heartland Mini Kit which is now available for sale over in the Scribbles Designs Store.  Thanks so much to Sandy for allowing me this opportunity to start selling my kits!  Click on the watermark below to find it in the Scribbles Designs Store.
    • You can purchase the set of 4 papers for $1.50 or the whole set for just $1.00 more!

Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • This wonderful sentiment was perfect for this card is of course from Create with TLC. I picked it up a while back as a freebie.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.  While I couldn't find this exact one in the store, I did find the same saying in another great layout.  Click on the watermark below to find this particular one in the store.
Through Thick and Thin

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • #B 12 Flutter Heart Border:  This wonderful image and sentiment combined is also available in the Scribbles Designs store.   Click on the name or watermark below, to head to its location in the store.

Paper Products:  
  • Card, image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
Digital Paper Products: 
  • The background was created in Photoshop Elements.  I just found a basic layer style that had all the colours found within my hearts and applied it to my layer.  
 Challenges I am hoping to enter...
