Makes me smile!

The theme for week 168 at Less is More is "Makes me Smile". I am submitting this card because I was so happy when I achieved the clean and simple look I was aiming for. This took 3 attempts as I smudged the other ones. CAS cards may look simple but making them involves a lot of work!

My card is based on a design by Joanne Allison in the April issue of Craft Stamper magazine. This very effective technique is done with an eraser on the end of a pencil! The ink is Salty Ocean distress ink and the stamps are from the Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams set.

Thank you for visiting my blog  - hop over to LIM to see how the other participants interpreted this challenge.
