hee hee hee, this was the title of today's challenge on SCS. You know you say that to children all the time. So today's challenge was to simplify - NO embellishments at all. Now that should be easy, but . . . somtimes it's difficult not to add all those beauties we have lurking in the cupboards and drawers! lol

So here is my card for the challenge. The card base is very vanilla and stamped with French Script with Riding Hood Red ink. I then sponged on more riding hood red and a little creamy caramel. I then stamped the snowflakes from the Snow Swirled set with versamark and embossed with copper again. Ooooo, pretty!

For the tree, I used versamark to stamp the tree and embossed it with Copper embossing powder. That really looks nice on that red. I then cut it out and mounted it onto scalloped rectangles made with my nesties. The sentiment is also using the nesties, and I did paper pierce around the edges for even more detail, since we couldn't add ribbon or any other fun embellishments.

I hope you like it and I hope you have a wonderful Friday!
