Soft and Simple

Last night I created a card that is a bit different than my usual style but I am happy with how it turned out and it was super simple and quick to make...gotta love that, right?! So, first I want to share a little about my inspiration for this card. This week for Ashley's Etsy Inspired challenge she is featuring the Equivoque shop which has some beautiful pictures that have a very soft quality to them. This is the photograph, titled Singular, that inspired me.

I am also following Christi's new venture this year...Exercise your Creativity and the focus this week is white. Now, as many of you know, I rarely have much blank, white space on my cards because there are just so many fabulous patterned papers that I can cover it up with! But, for this card I took a much more simple approach, used soft colors, a single flower, and left a fair amount of white space. And, I love it! What do you think?
This card is a small 3x3 size and both of the stamps I used are from Unity. When I was young I always made wishes on dandelions so I thought it would be the perfect sentiment for this card. Thanks for visiting today...may all your wishes for this year come true!
