and it's quite simple, because it's
That's it.

and you can win a cute rubber stamp.

I am one of these persons who always have a problem with simple cards. I cannot fight this feeling that something is missing and I put another embellishment on the creation. Here's my DT 'simple' valentine's card.
It is as simple as possible... for me! LOL This is a card I made for my friend's Mum, she asked me to involve some music theme here, as her Mum plays a few instruments.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am sure I will find a lot of inspiration in your entries!
I would like to enter some challenges, too: button from stash + upcycled ribbon
