Keep It Simple

DSCF7633

After seeing this card from Lisa, I decided to make a simple card for the Pals Paper Arts challenge today:  to keep it simple, sweetie.  This was originally intended for my SIL, who loves all things country, but hates buttons!  Do you know how difficult it is for me to make a “country” card with no buttons!  She freaks out and will not touch anything that has a button!  But I think this may be a bit too plain for her, so I’ll make her another one; but this one will make a good masculine birthday card for someone else:

Busy day today, gotta run!  Image is from Waltzingmouse; sentiment a retired SU cutie.  TFL!  Blessings on your day!

I have a SIL that is like that with pill bottle cotton.
This is a great card. The image is a perfect fit for this size of card and the other elements are simple, yet strong.
