Clean and Simple-Whimsical Designs Reveal

Well, Helloooo fellow crafters.. So glad you stopped by today to check out my take on a CAS style card.. Let me start by saying " oh boy, was this ever a challenge!"..LOL  I'm sure everyone has figured out that I like to load my projects with lots of stuff, so playing it simple really did make this a challenge..
So with that said, this is what I came up with:
I like how I went with the using the same color theme.. The black, white and grey really make the card elegant..

I watched a video on how to add faux stitching to your cuts using the silhouette software.. made it so easy and no more trying to figure out if the lines are straight or not..LOL

When I was browsing through the sentiments, I wanted to use one that I hadn't used before and when I see this one, the song started playing in my head..LOL  Its why I added the piano :)

We have a great sponsor this week:
3 digis of winners choice..
