Another "Clean" Card for Freshly Made Sketches #229


I loved the sketch for this week's challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I thought it had a lot of possibilities.  I decided to keep it really clean with white on white.  The pop of color from the new Regatta papers from CTMH was just enough!

I matted the diamond-shaped pieces with white, then stamped the sentiment and added the flowers directly to the shape.  The bright blues and reds really stand out.  The blue striped strip on the left is very subdued, but it keeps it from competing with the rest of the images, while still adding interest.

This card will be a part of my April Stamp Club classes.  Here is some more information about it!  All materials used are from CTMH
Stamps:
Flowers - Friend in Me (C1640) available only until the end of April!
Sentiment - Finding the Words (D1646)
Papers:
Regatta paper pack (X7206B) available only until the end of April!
White Daisy cardstock

For class participants, you can see all of the options that "Finding the Words" provides for personalizing this card.
