Ornate Style for PP487

Happy Sunday! Time for a new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, I am super-excited to be hosting our monthly 
Clean-and-Simple (CAS) Challenge. 
 Check it out and play along with us! 
I added a fun twist to the Clean and Simple theme to feature SPARKLE on your projects. You can add as much or as little as you would like but dress up those projects with some sparkly goodness. 
Don’t you love that floral image? It is from a new stamp set called Ornate Style which is going to be featured in the new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog in June. But guess what? It is available to order right NOW as part of an early release. It is part of the Ornate Garden Suite which is so beautiful. You can learn more about those brand new products HERE

Ok, so Clean-and-Simple is usually a bit of a struggle for me but I think I finally found a groove. I think all of the sparkly details distracted me. Ha! I decided to go with a black and white color combo to really let the glitz and glam take center stage on the card. I just think there is something so elegant about a simple black and white card, too. I added in the sentiment from To a Wild Rose stamp set because it was so simple and i just love the font. I also added a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the inside of the card to write a handwritten note.
