Welcome to a new challenge here at The Card Concept!
Look at these cute animals in the

I have this adorable Simon Says Stamp -Woodland Whimsey,
which was perfect to create my Clean & Simple style card!


I stamped the images with Black Archival ink onto some watercolor paper and painted them with water colors.


The style of my card is considered Clean & Simple:

One main image
Lots of open space
Limited layers and embellishments
Quick & Easy to create
