Now how simple could a card get???

Hello kind peeps,

Here is my card to show you - I started with something totally different but ended it up like this. And I seem to like it as it is quite unisex (more male though). I do have a doubt about the font of the sentiment which is a bit informal compared to the layout of the card. The sentiment is actually a ribbon. The dark blue ribbon is from my stash and so is the creamy label while the blue die cut was sent to me by Shirley-Anne which I have embossed to add texture. 

The card below was made entirely by Aleeza - from folding to cutting with her deckled edged scissors. She made the heart background and stuck this embossed panel over the striped paper. She has coloured over the embossing and she even cut of the corners saying she was rounding them off. Lol. And this card was lovingly handed over to her Dad by her.

I will enter this card in the following: - always anything goes - anything goes - anything goes - it's raining men

Wish you a nice Monday.

Two cute cards! Love the simplicity of yours Monica and those colors! So pretty.
Aleeza did a great job once again. Love how she scalloped the one side and her flower is so pretty. I'm sure "dad" will treasure this!

Your card is elegant Monica, but Aleeza's card is a master piece I like the colours the distressed edging and the hand drawn flower and the doodling :o)
