I think clean and simple is more my style as it comes more easier for me to create. So my card is below. What do you think?
To make this card, I cut a strip of designer paper from Basic Grey's hopscotch collection. I used my Crumb Cake ink to sponge the edges. I then punched out of the ribbon trim punch a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock and covered most of the punch, but left the small scallop edge to peek through the bottom. For visual interest I cut it short so it did not span the entire width of the card.
I used my Big Shot and die cut the sentiment - Billboard strip die from Stampin' Up! in both crumb cake and white. To soften the white, I lightly sponged it with crumb cake ink also. Before adhering to the card, I drew my brown line around the perimeter edge of the card - I hope with more practice my lines will be more straight...but good enough. And just for a bit more interest, I added 3 rhinestones in 2 different sizes. I hope it adds balance to the card.
Try to make your own card for this challenge. I'd like to see what you create! Happy crafting!
