TIOT #76 - Clean and Simple

Happy Thursday night everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful day!  YAY tomorrow is Friday...too bad I have to go to a funeral :(  Our best friend's Grandma passed away this week so I will be going to spend some time with him and his family.  Today's card is the card that I made for the family.  It also is my sample for this week's TIO*T* card!!!  Suzanne has challenged us to make a clean and simple card with just white/cream and one extra pop of color....now your image can be multi-colored.  Of course this was a little tough for me as I don't think it's in my blood to make a simple card...hee hee!
For my card I have used the NEW Just For You by Elisabeth Bell exclusively for SCACD that is from the Sampler Edition #5.  This stamp is gorgeous...I absolutely love the swirls on the vase!  This stamp can be perfect for any occasion...birthday, thinking of you, invitation, you name it!  Of course you can see that I've used blue for my pop of color.  I've used a Sizzix embossing folder for the back panel.  Corners were jazzed up with my Viva Decor Light Blue Pearl Pen.
 The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and then colored with Copics.  I've cut the image out with my Spellbinders Oval die, and the pansy background was made with my MS border punch.  The main image was edged with my Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Hologram.
Flower are from the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts!  All flowers were white and then I airbrushed them to match the color blue from my cardstock.  I've used 8mm semi-open roses, 10mm roses, and a 30mm wild rose.  All flowers have been accented with Star Dust Stickles.
Finally is another view of the beautiful vase!  From this angle I am hoping that you can see the shimmer to my image.  After coloring with Copics I then went over the image with various Twinkling H2Os to add that shimmer to the image!

I hope you head over to the SCACD Blog to see what amazing creations the other DT members have made!!!  They are all stunning!  I also have a fun tutorial for SCACD coming up soon and you don't want to miss it!
