This card was made for the Splitcoaststampers’ Clean and Simple #52 Challenge.  Ugh.. clean and simple is SO HARD for me!  This was about as good as I could get it.  The urge to add embellishments or other elements to this card was overwhelming!  lol


The embossed squares were made with Cuttlebug’s Decorative Squares #3 Embossing Folder, and a marker was used to draw lines and dots on and between the embossing.  The bee’s trail was also hand drawn.

Pat Adam is once again collecting Valentines for the children at Children’s Hospital.  I’m trying to make a few to send to her asap as she needs them by February 8th.  If you are interested in helping, check out her blog for more details.

Happy Groundhog’s Day!
