Love.Trees.Birds. Happy Anniversary

At My Grafico,this week we are showcasing a very lovable set of images called Love, Trees & Birds, created by Baby Star Designs. This set too has so many possibilities. I chose to design an anniversary card.

This is the front cover on my tri fold card. I wanted to keep it simple to show that a thoughtful card can be done quickly and easily. 
Lift up the front flap and this is what you will see.

Now fold down the front flap and this is the inside. 
The tri fold card was made from black card stock. All the images were printed on white card stock. I added the red ribbon and the computer generated sentiment along with the button brad.  All the materials used can be found at Michael's Craft Store. 

I must admit that it took me awhile to decide on an idea. The rest is so simple. (I hope that my husband will enjoy this

Now that I have inspired you to create a CAS (Clean and Simple) card, what are you waiting for?

You can enter your creations for the current challenge FUN AND GAMES until Friday, April 27th at midnight HERE.  Plenty of time to play along.  One winner will receive this set: Viva Las Vegas by JW Illustrations.
