CTS#233 is clean and simple this week.  There are times I think clean and simple still needs something extra.  Other times,  I really enjoy the clean lines and ample white space.  This challenge is one of those times.

My color pallet was CAS(E)’d from a card (origin is forgotten ~ Pinterest, Facebook groups, and I am going to try to find it and then update this post, but time is of the essence for this challenge post).   Pastel colors of Flirty Flamingo, PeekaBoo Peach, So Saffron, and Sweet Sugarplum with touches of Emerald Envy for the grass and flower stem.  For the bottom, I used the centers of the daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set.  When I created the arch, I also cut a mat out of Sweet SugarPlum.

I love these piggies and this one was perfect with the sentiment on the side of the piggie.  She’s colored in Flirty Flamingo and PeekaBoo Peach with a Sweet SugarPlum sentiment, all of which had to be masked to get the black pig outline with the sentiment stamped at the same time.  I barely overlapped the mound on the bottom on purpose.

I wanted something with more of a presence than the flower on this stamp, so I used the small two-step daisy stamp, fussy cut it, and mounted it with mini-dimensionals.  I added Whisper White bakers twine which added an accent without making too big of a statement.  Mounted everything on PeekaBoo Peach and called it a day.

Here’s my card:
