Keeping it Clean and Simple for GVT!

Greetings, Friends of the Farm! It’s time for a new Garden Variety Tuesday challenge, and this week, we’re keeping it Clean and Simple (also known as CAS). 
So, what makes a card “clean and simple”? For one thing, it’s an easy card to reproduce. There aren’t lots of layers; it’s often a one layer card, but can sometimes is two layers. There’s only one focal point, and little or no embellishments. It contains up to three colors, or possibly three different papers.
I chose “Cheeky Lessons” for today’s card. I kept my paper choices simple, only using three, but one solid and another subtle pattern for the mat.
My main image is the focal point of the card, and I kept embellishments to a minimum, with just the ribbon separating the two sections (and those three brads in the corner, which probably don’t need to be there). I stamped my sentiment on the solid paper so that I didn’t have to add another layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget that we’ll be previewing the August TGF release next week…I hope you’ll celebrate with us!

Getting sketchy for Garden Variety Tuesday!

Hi, everybody! We’re getting sketchy with the newest Garden Variety Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm! I picked “Cheeky Lessons” for today’s card:
I added some Glossy Accents on her glasses and the apple and substituted two metallic brads for the buttons on the sketch. The sentiment is from my stash.
And here’s our fantastic and fabulous sketch, designed by Farmer Annie Rose:

I haven’t been listing all of my supplies because I’m not sure if it’s still helpful to my readers. Would you still like me to list the supplies for my cards, or just the paper, or are you OK with just the picture of the card? Or, instead of a list of supplies, do you prefer the click-and-shop links that other bloggers use? Just let me know in the comments section…thanks so much!

And THANK YOU so much for stopping by today! It’s a busy posting week for me, so I hope you’ll bear with me…I’ll have at least two posts per day until Saturday, but I can assure you that you’ll be inspired and delighted!
