Pretties Wednesday: Keeping it Simple

Today's Pretties challenge was issued to us by Julie! Julie's challenge was to create a card using a clean and simple layout. Oh boy... clean and simple is always so difficult for me but I think I managed it and I only had to rip the card apart one time!

Sadly this is my last PWC challenge post as a Prettie Girl. I had to make the difficult decision to step down from the team at the end of this month. I love the Prettie stamps and have enjoyed working with Christie and all of the Prettie Girls but I've been a little short on crafting time lately (lots of work to do at the Job) and thought it best to cut down on my crafty commitments. This doesn't mean I won't be crafting it just means that there may (most likely will) be times when I need to take a break for a couple of weeks and concentrate on the Job. But never fear... I will be around! :) Oh and for all of you Prettie fans I've heard a rumor that there will be some new talent joining the rest of the amazing ladies on the Paper Pretties design team. :D

On that note, for more fun samples hop along on a blog hop with the Prettie Girls. The hop started at Christie's so if you missed a couple of stops before visiting my blog you will want to start there first! The next stop is the fabulous Charmaine!
