I have a SUPER SIMPLE card today for SIMPLY MONDAY.  

I know that many say that simple cards should only use stamps, ink, and paper.  But I don't 100% buy into that philosophy.  I think "simple" is more about the amount of effort and time needed to make a card, not about the supplies you use.

For today's card, I let the Fresh as a Daisy paper do all the work for me!  This Designer Series Paper has two unique sheets included in the collection that are designed so all you need to do is cut the images apart and you have a beautiful card front or focal point.

As you can see, I used the center section but aren't some of these other images also beautiful?  Honestly, it was difficult to choose which one I wanted to use, but I wanted to try the two new In-Colors, Boho Blue and Copper Clay, so these daisies were perfect.

After layering the floral paper on the Copper Clay mat all I needed to do was add a sentiment.  I decided to use this sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set and then use one of the Something Fancy dies to cut it out.  

After that all that was left was to add a little Boho Blue Ribbon and some Adhesive Backed Solid Gems.  

Normally, I would use some more of the Designer Series Paper to decorate the inside of my card and its envelope, but since this piece was sized specifically for a card front there were not any leftovers.  Well, I did say there were two sheets of this unique DSP, but I didn't really want to cut the 2nd panel into pieces.  So instead, I used the daisy cluster stamp from Cheerful Daisies to stamp some Boho Blue flowers in each corner.  The birthday sentiment is also from Cheerful Daisies.
