Clean and Simple Monday

Here is my card for this week’s Clean and Simple challenge over on Splitcoaststampers (keyword: CAS34).  This week is a color challenge – pink, blue, green with an optional chocolate (white/cream too)!  I just love love loved the fun rhinestone flower shown over at Embellish Magazine last week and thought I would try to make my own.  (Tutorial is HERE)

I started by tearing circles out of Prism cardstock and stamped them both using tiny polka dots in Versamark.  I did the same with my two green leaves.  I used my paper piercer to poke holes in my cardstock wide enough to allow the posts of the rhinestone brads to fit.  I tried to get the brads to fit snuggly up against each other.  Easy peasy!
