Clean and Simple? FMS203











The seasons are changing and Halloween will be here before we know it! Our final summer weekend at the lake was highlighted by a trip to the county fair and a bonfire on the beach.  Delightful!







I consider this a clean and simple card but as I sat down to write the post I am starting to rethink that simple part!  It took 7 stamp sets and some Winter Wonderland DSP to make this card come together! There are images from:  


Celebrate Today
Holly Jolly Greetings
Frightful Wreath
Among the Branches
Holiday Home
If The Broom Fits
Endless Birthday Wishes

That amazing Jen Mitchell has a delightful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! Hope you play along!

Well, the final outcome is CAS even if the execution took 7 stamp sets! I LOVE it!

Well, 7 stamps sets paid off! This is so cute and I love the crow on the broom! Fun way to end the summer too!

7 stamp sets?!? I wouldn't have believed it if you hadn't listed them. I may not always end up using that many on a CAS card, but I usually have at least that many on my desk from trying to make one. Everything works so well together on this card, and I love the little bit of gold cord on the broom.
