With Valentine's Day coming up, I created this simple design that could be mass-produced for my daughter, Hannah's Valentine exchange at school. She thinks we may have to make cards with kitties for the girls and doggies for the boys:)

Peace on Earth - Uniko Studio Style

How gorgeous is this Poinsettia image from Uniko Studio? It seems like magic when this inked up image meets the paper... I was inspired by the colors over at the ColourQ Challenge 168...
and the Friday Mashup 89: Clean & Simple.
I don't do many Clean & Simple styled cards, but Uniko Studio images are so gorgeous all by themselves and scream, "CAS!" The set I used for my card today is called Pure Florals: Poinsettia. Head on over to the Uniko Studio shop and get your own set!
I used Pure Poppy ink for the Poinsettia, added a few clear rhinestones, and some kraft seam binding! Easy CAS design!
