Challenge Entry: 365 Cards - Day 271 - Keep It Simple

A quick and easy card done under 30 minutes! :)

This card is for 365 Cards' Day 271 challenge which is to keep it simple using only these elements on the card.


Cardstock base, 1 patterned paper, 2 embellishments, and a sentiment - that's all you can have on your card.


And so here is my take.




The DP I used is from American Crafts I Do collection.  The ribbon is also American Crafts.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  Then I popped a cute little baby shoe charm from All About Scrapbooking to match my sentiment.

More challenges:
1. Meljen's Designs - Twine
2. Lollipop Crafts - B for... Brown
3. Deep Ocean Challenge - C as ... Charm
4. Moxie Fab World - Pay It Forward Challenge - National Day of Encouragement

Thanks for looking! :)
