Watercooler Wednesday Challenges #76

Summer is in full swing here in my little corner of the world.  Hot days, warm nights and dreams of cooler weather.  For this week's Clean And Simple (CAS) challenge, Penny has chosen the theme of Butterflies.  I love butterflies and I seem to have a tendency to make them all blue.  Although I used the In the Meadow stamp set for the grass and flowers, I pulled out my Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set and used those butterflies.

While our challenge rules state you can add one layer onto your card base, I chose to keep it a single layer card.  I love trying to come up with a simple card that looks nice but has no embellishments other than the stamp and ink you use.

At this time, I'd like to share with you our rules for the Clean And Simple (CAS) challenge we have at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges.  You can make a single layer card or you can add a single layer to your card base.  No embellishments, no embossing folders and no die-cuts are allowed.  But, you can add color by heat embossing with your favorite embossing powder.  Just take a look at all the Design Team projects to get an idea of what we expect.  Follow these rules for your Clean And Simple project and you could be our next winner!

Stamp Sets:  Butterfly Basics (sentiment), In the Meadow, Perpetual Birthday Calendar; Inks:  Dapper Denim, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede; Stampin' Write Markers:  Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach; Cardstock:  Whisper White
