A Clean and Simple Monday

I wanted to color this little bird. I even had markers at the ready. But when I put this gingham bow on the card, a new plan came to mind.

Keep it simple! Add a little faux stitching to the focus panel to mimic the stitching that edges the gingham ribbon. Pop up the focus panel.

Yep! That's enough. Don't complicate it. Just leave the lovely kraft and black color combination alone. Let the ribbon do the talking.

I will sing the LORD'S praise, for He has been good to me.  Simple as that. Amen!
