Clean and Simple at Addicted to Stamps

Not sure why I find this type of card so difficult to make cause I only had to add three things to a piece of card :(. I do like to join the Addicted to Stamps Challenge and it is clean and simple this week so I have tried my best to make a clean and simple card.

I went outside in the beautiful sunshine and took a close up of a few of our poppies--I thought they were red but they are more orangey--hence the ribbon colour. Just did a border in Paint Shop Pro on the photo. Added a simple stamped sentiment and the ribbon and that's it really. Well I tried lol. I am more an, add as much as possible and make it complicated, type of person.


  1. This is beautiful Chrissie xxx

  2. Gorgeous image, love the poppies.

  3. ...a beautiful card Chrissie...poppy's are so pretty with their delicate papery petals, they seem so fragile and yet they have this truely gorgeous orangy/red colour that commands attention & draws a smile to all that see it...I find the less is more the most difficult too...Mel :)
