How SIMPLE can you get?

Have you ever tried to use no more then three products plus the cardstock when creating a card? At first this sounds rather easy. Well, I will tell you, it is a feat that is almost impossible!!! At first I thought of stamping but just the stamp and the ink are two products right there!
When I started out to create this card, I thought the extreme simpleness added to a look you would want to go along with a wedding. This is cream colored cardstock, a silk flower. a pearl brad and a rub-on design.

You already know I am madly in love with my border punches so I started out by punching a border along the bottom of my card. Next came the neat label rub-on and the sticker letters.
Can you guess how tempting it is to keep ADDING products?

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

It is incredibly hard for me to do simple! We did 3 products (one being cardstock) for Card-a-licious last week and I had to start over three times. You did a beautiful job though Linda. They are all so elegant. Nice work!

I love simple cards for weddings. They always look more elegant.

My guess is that it was really tempting to keep adding. Am I correct? (Ha)
