Hope you are having a great week and are looking forward to a fab weekend. We'll start our weekend tonight with a Tex Mex dinner and a cowboy or action film with home made popcorn. That's a fab Friday for my sons! I quite like them too, I mean our Fridays, he he.
I'm still working with my clean cards, I have been trying to make a one layer card, but that is more difficult than it sounds. At least for me. It's so tempting to add layers in the making of I'm happily sticking to my layers.

The Penny Black image is colored with watercolor pens and I added some Stickles to the ribbon, grass and flowers.
The decor paper is made with TH stamps, Distress Ink and Versa Color.
I have used a MS border punch and an EK Success corner rounder punch.
Ribbon and dragonfly brad are from my stash.

    I kow just what you mean about clean cut cards, it's ot difficult than it seems adn very tempting to add to them.

    But I think you got this one just right, the lovely PB image stands out so well against the pretty borders.
