Happy Wednesday!
It has been a super productive day for me today.  I got 5 cards done!!!  That is amazing for me, I'm usually lucky if I get 2 done!  (I get distracted a lot :) )
3 of the cards today were not very detailed at all.  I tried my hand at clean and simple...very clean and simple:
But I just LOVE how it turned out!  I got my inspiration from Christy's clean and simple card style at Tiddly Inks.  I loved the idea of not having anything else on the card front to take away from the focus of the image and sentiment.  So I gave it a shot!
I used the image Pregnant Pinup from Sassy Studio Designs.  I just love their images!  I colored her in with my colored pencils and attempted to give her redish highlights :)  It was a fun change from the usual brown tones I use.
I didn't plan on adding the squares around the outside of the card, but when I penciled them in to see what they would look like, I just loved them.  So I used my paper trimmer as my guide and tilted a couple lines around the whole card.  Then added a few green and silver gems to some extra bling :)
It's such a sweet card!  I really like doing this style card (I made 2 other styles :) ).  So I definitely think I will keep doing them!
