  1. What a stunning and elegant card! This is a perfect example of “less is more”! Thank you so much!!!

  2. Carol Carriveau

    So lovely!

  3. Beautiful Mary! You are the master of CAS!

  4. Hi Tresa: We often over think our designs, including me. I get out too many colors and too many embellishments. The key to a simple card is to be able to edit and/or stop along the way and ask “is this enough?” It often is! M

  5. Love it, why don’t I ever think of something so simple?

  6. Oh my GOD , BEAUITIFUL Ms Mary ,
    You talk me into getting that bundle , I love the bee
    Sold !!!
    Have a nice day …
    Hugs frenchie

  7. Beautiful Mary! So clean and simple. Didn’t want this set until now!

  8. Love this!!!! I finally have all the paper and inks, so one of these days I’ll be doing PPA, too!

  9. This stamp set and companion die is beautiful and so versatile. I totally agree with Bridgett, your card just makes me want to own that bundle!!! Gosh Mary, my wish list is changing almost daily thanks to the amazing cards you make and share with us. I’m going to re-arrange (again!) this list to include this bundle. Your card is gorgeous!

  10. Have to say that I bought this set…..and don’t use it nearly enough. This layout and color combination is SO BEAUTIFUL together. Will be CASEing this card for sure. Thanks for sharing Mary!

  11. Super elegant, Mary. Love it!

  12. Bridget Trefethen

    Your card proves to me that I really do want that set of stamps and framelits. Your card is peaceful and pretty. It is amazing how the colors change each other depending on which color is next to which other one!

    Thank you for sharing!
