Today’s Card is for a Sketch Challenge from

Here is the Challenge!
Here is my take on the sketch!

I didn’t have to embellish or “Bling-Up”…it stands well enough on it’s own for
giving…it is going to a young man, and they aren’t the “Blingy” type!
I think I even surprised myself that this card was pretty much made
with no other tools, other than the Stampin’Up! Paper Trimmer!
Just like the old days of Card Making! Oh, don’t get me wrong…I love my tools!
Sometimes simplicity speaks volumes!
What do you think? Do you use tools all the time or do you keep it simple?
Let me know, I am curious too!
Until the next Post…Blessings and Simple joys to you ALL!
