Clean and Simple

I wanted to make a card in which I could combine several challenges and still feel like it reflects my style.  I love paper layering with mats and I love clean and simple lines, letting the patterned paper carry the design.  I've had this paper for awhile just waiting for the right design to come along. 
The Sentimental Sundays' challenge asked us to move out of our comfort zone and although this card is my clean, simple, layered style, making it square definitely is not!  I am truly an A2 size card maker so this was tricky for me.  Birthday Sundaes asked for a card with buttons, My Craft Spot asked for something with ribbon, and Mojo Monday provided the sketch (we could use the sketch either square or round).   I think I followed each challenge's guidelines yet maintained my own design style.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  It's my hubby's 50th class reunion and the high school's 100th year so lots of activities going on in our small town.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn
