Mo's Challenge # 228

Clean and Simple

The theme of Mo's Challenge this week, chosen by our hostess, the talented Franz, is "Clean and Simple," so step away from those embellishments! Well, most of them anyway.  I find both extremes of card design difficult...a lot of stuff or too little always makes me nervous! I think this card is as close as I get to CAS.

  Some time ago I decided to sit down at my machine and do a bunch of sewn backgrounds using assorted scraps of leftover DP. I had so much fun, but this is the very last of the lot. Time to do it all over again!

I made the bow following Jak Heath's Double Bow tutorial. It helped that the ribbon was wired!
