...Keep It Simple, Stupid!

Happy Friday, everyone! This is my sample for today's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm Blog. We have a KISS challenge today...use straight cuts on your project (no nesties, no punches, etc...only use your paper cutter). I kept my card as simple as possible...one layer. I used one of the new images by Elizabeth O. Dulemba called Library Mouse, and added a rub-on sentiment that I found in my stash. I watercolored the adorable and intellectual rodent, then added a piece of striped ribbon to complete the card.

Now let's see what the rest of the Farmers and Gardeners have in store for us today:
That's it for me! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to join us for some simple fun! I will see you back here again tomorrow with another project for Crazy 4 Challenges, but I will be spending the entire day with my best friend, Pam. We have some serious stamping to take care of today! LOL! So until later...

Even with one layer Mercy, you hit this challenge out of the ball park! It sooo holds up on it's own with just the ribbon as an embellishment - great job!!
