Clean and Simple...Sort Of

Are there certain types of cards or projects that no matter how hard you try you just can't seem to wrap your brain around them? With me, CAS cards are my worst nightmare because no matter what I do I can't make them look good without looking too plain or more often than not, clean and simple becomes cluttered and over the top. It feels like forever since I inked up any of my TGF stamps so I attempted to force myself out of my comfort zone and participate in this week's FFF Challenge Clean and Simple over at The Greeting Farm. Since I adore stamps that don't have a specific theme, I loved the idea of using Maria from the Roll Call kit (retired sorry!) to make this quick card

Maria (TGF Roll Call Kit) 

I colored up little Maria using my TH distress markers and added a bit of shimmer with my wink of stella brush pen. The sentiment I used is also from The Greeting Farm from the Cheeky X-mas set (also retired) stamped in the same distress marker I used to color Maria's little dress. I know I need to practice my CAS cards, but they're just soooo hard. I'm addicted to bling and embellishments, is there a meeting for that sort of thing???? What about you ladies out there, any specific type of card, project, or medium you struggle with? I'd love to know! By the way, there's a new release preview blog hop going on over at The Greeting Farm and I can't wait to see what the creative ladies on the DT have come up with so I'm headed over to hop around, come with me for a chance to win the new release and thanks for stopping by
