One Layer Wedding Card

Today the Splitcoaststamper's  CAS 169 Challenge is " It's Time to be Chic". 
I have always struggled with clean and simple, frightened by all that white space but was inspired by this challenge.  Such a quick and simple card to make!!

~Dry emboss a white card base with Sizzix'z Corner's Flourish.

~Using Versafine Onyx Black stamp Rubbernecker's Flourish #1 sku 611-01 and a sentiment from Rubbernecker's Best Wishes Sku:600. Emboss them with clear embossing powder.

~Emboss 2 butterflies from Rubbernecker's Butterfly Inchies sku:427 and cut them out. Attach them with glue dots. Add a tiny rhinestone to each butterfly.

~ Add some pearls.

I just might try more clean and simple cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
