Card for The Paper Players Challenge #52

Hi there, dear readers!

Today i'll be participating for the first time in The Paper Players Challenge.  They have a variety of weekly scheduled challenges and am excited to play!  Here's the link to this week's challenge:  Challenge # 52 - Clean and Simple.  I have recently - and happily - discovered that there is really a CAS technique - and i thought,  what i previously did in my scrapbook layout was called "flat!"  

Here's my card:

I embossed the base cardstock.  The big image is the one i played with.  Saw this "Direct-To-Paper" technique over at the Splitcoast Stampers site and tried it.  I love how it turned out!  The sentiment at the bottom i have handwritten and direct-inked the paper again. Have inked all the edges of the papers used.

Materials:  White cardstock; stamps and embossing folder - Tim Holtz; Distress Inks.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
