Clean & Simple... Ten Minute Monday!

A couple Clean & Simple cards to share!! I seen the Ten Minute Monday post and just fell in love with this card... so I decided to give it a try with my DP's that are so unloved lately! Do you ever have that issue? I have a lot of single sheets that don't have coordinating paper, because I think I have to HAVE them! :)

The first card is for fall that's around the corner. I followed the double button idea and embossed a row of dots with my CuttleBug. Then embossed my sentiment.

My second card I used chipboard flowers, added a gold pearl next to my sentiment and LOVE the DP with the rich chocolate in the background. Very easy peassy cards!! :)

Tonight I have Julie's Card Club and she just got back from convention! Can't wait to see her swaps... FUN!

Enjoy and have a super Monday!
SMILES... Michelle :)

I have that tree paper too Michelle! Love how you used yours. That button is a perfect embellishment, as is the cute row of dots you added. Love those colors and the great flower on your second card! Stay cool:)))

Lovely cards Michelle. Finally I get time to write a bit more about your gorgeous cards, usually I only get a minute!

I love the colours on both cards, so very different. I really like the tree paper and the way you've done your double button. I must try that, it's really effective. I also like the way you've just embossed one row using your CB folder. Luverly!

In the second card I really like the way you've doubled up the flowers and the way you've tied the centre, it's lovely. I also like the yellow polka dot ribbon behind, cute!! I always buy paper with words on but generally tend to cover most of it up with something. This is a great way to show them off, great job! :o)
