Clean and Simple

I just love sites like Clean and Simple.  They do such a wonderful job of giving me sketches that don't require many supplies or a lot of thought.  If you have never tried a stamping challenge before, start with this site.  You will not feel overwhelmed at all!  This week's sketch is so simple and beautiful.  I will probably be making a card that looks exactly like the sketch in the near future!

I wanted my card for the challenge to look a little different than the sample though. :) 
The swirls from Everything Eleanor make perfect vines for flowers.  I love the whole stamp set, but I honestly bought it for just that one stamp alone!  I love it!  To give my flower a little bit of dimension I folded the petals down.  Usually I fold them up, so I thought this gave it a different look than what I am used to.  Then I popped it up on some Dimensionals and added some pearls.  I scored the card from the inside all the way around the card, 3/8" in (yes, I have a degree in math :).  This is something else I don't usually do, so it IS possible to do a new technique on a clean and simple card!
