CAS30 - Make Over

The latest Clean and Simple challenge #30 was to use one of your own cards and "re-make" it into a Claen and Simple card. I love this idea!! And I had lots of cards to choose from. You see, I make all kinds of cards. I loved how Jen put it..."I'm an equal opportunity stamper" meaning
that I like to create clean and simple cards, embellished cards, vintage cards...you name it, I like to do it!! True, I have been on a bit of a clean and simple streak lately, but I had lots of heavily embellished cards to choose from!!
I decided to go with this very heavily layered and embellished card -- quite a challenge!! And I ended up with this card.
I stamped this wonderful branch of leaves and then layered the sentiment over some of it. I finished off the card by adding a white flower with a brad in the middle. The brad does not go all the way through the card, just the flower and I snipped off the ends. I adhered the flower with some glue dots!
Supplies: Stamps-Beautiful Blooms, Wishing You (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink), Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!); Paper - Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Other - flower (Artemio), brad (a dollar store).
I am going over to the CAS30 gallery to see what everyone else did!! This was such a fun challenge, I might even simplify a few more of my heavily embellished cards... just for fun!!
Thanks for your comments, I truely appreciate it!!

Simple yet so sweet! I do love the original though. I have a weak spot for ribbon...and the way you used that daisy in the center is so sweet! I hope to be able to play along with this challenge later on this week! :)
