CAS challenge 8/3/09

So todays CAS (clean and simple) challenge on SCS is to use stitching on your cards...weather it be real stitching or faux! I opted for faux...since I don't have my machine here...boo hiss!
So for my card I wanted it to be EXTREMLY simple and clean...So I used my ultimate FAV paper in the whole wide world! Shimmery white cardstock! It rocks and it's sooo fancy! And I used my smewhat neglected embossing folder...the one with the frame...I just had to have that one and it makes awesome cards!
Once I cut, scored and embossed my card, all I did was use my exacto knife an cut out the opening of the frame...leaving a little smidge so I could stitch around it! I then used a micro fine tip point and did my deed...stitching! Took a piece of designer paper and cut it to 4 x 5.25 and adhered it to the inside of the card. Then on the little scrap that I cut out from the frame, I stamped the little duck from the Stampin' Up! set called "Goody Goody Gum Drop", hostess level three from last years catalog, and colored it using rose red ink and a blender pen,,,added a touch of summer sun to the beach and some close to cocoa for the wheels...cut, add dimentional and voila! Card complete!

And here is a bit of a close up so you can see the cards awesomeness and sheer simplicity! I did add a rhinestoneto the little bow...I think it looks super cute!
