The Card Concept 27--LOVE

I'm playing with The Card Concept Challenge #27 and here's the inspiration photo.

I created a card in the Clean and Simple style. My inspiration?
The woodgrain and ombré letters.

I ink distressed white cardstock in three colors of Distress ink before cutting out
 the sentiment several times and layering them. The tiny hearts are from
an Avery Elle set and the "you" is from Winnie & Walter.
I should try other card styles but when the white space starts to fill up,
I get a little antsy and always resort to a CAS card. Maybe one day...


  1. I love the woodgrain background and the ombre affect on the words. There is nothing wrong with CAS least you can fit them in an envelope :) Hugs....Janie

  2. Seriously awesome card Donna <3 it :)
