Whimsy August Challenge - Clean and Simple

Hello again!
As well as the fabulous New Release Hops going on, today the Whimsy Stamps Rubber DT are posting their challenge creations for the Whimsy Inspiration Challenge blog.

The theme for August is "Clean and Simple"! Yikes! You are on my blog so you can see this is a challenge for me! ;) But here is my offering, and I have to say it was quite liberating just stepping back and saying... "That's it - DONE!" - while half the card was still stark white! :)

 
As today is Whimsy New Release Day (see my post above), I've used a brand new Stamp and Die set, available from today at the Whimsy Store, called "Everyday Honeycomb Sentiments" and "Honeycomb Die Set". The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose 'Mabel' 6x6 pad, and the cardstock is SU.


So go on... you have 2 more weeks to join this month's Whimsy Inspiration "Clean and Simple" Challenge for a chance to win one of three prizes!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Great CAS card Shannah! I like the hex die and sentiment.

It's hard to get your head around the CAS bit at first, then as you say, it is liberating. Stunning card Shannah.
