Phindy's Challenge - Clean and Simple Card

Hi and happy Friday! We are trying to fight our instincts this week at Phindy's by creating clean and simple cards and inviting you to join us!

I'm not really great at that style but I DID try. Lookie - no patterned paper!

I used Sizzix plate on card base and 5x7 Cuttlebug folder on white background. The image is from a really cool series called Sweet And Salty, coloured with Copic Markers.

I couldn't resist adding SOMETHING so I snook on some organza ribbon and Dew Drops.

Copic Markers:
Skin: E11/00/000
Bathrobe:R08/05/02/00, Y18/15/13/11/28
Baby, yellow details: Y18/15/13/11/28
Baby's hair: E17/15/13/41
Table: E18/09/08/97
Mirror: B00/0000
Screen: BG32/11/000
Computer, poodle, phone, towel: C7/5/3/1/00, 0
Cat, mug, lead, perfume bottle: E37/35/33/31/41
Shadows: W7/5/3/1/00, 0

IMAGE: PhindyColoring Medium: Copic Markers
Paper:  Neenah card for image
Accessories: ribbon, Dew Drops
Tools: ATG adhesive gun, glue gel, Purple Cow guillotine,Sizzix texture plate, Cuttlebug 5x7 folder

Awesome card, Annika!! For not being much of a clean and simple kinda girl, you did a fabulous job with it. Your coloring is pure perfection as usual and I love your sentiment. Housework makes me hot too but the wrong kind!!! :)

Annika, I wondered if you would be able to pull this off without having some kind of anxiety attack! Nope, I'd never call you a "simple" gal-clean, yes, but simple never. This card is fabulous, my friend--wondering-did you add flowers to it after you took the picture?!

Hee hee, love that sentiment Annika!

Fabulous colouring of the image, I've been too much in awe of this one to try to use it yet, though I have it printed out, how sad is that!

Beautiful, beautiful, elegant and sassy card
