Return of Clean and Simple

It's that time!  Indeedy pie, we are at the mid-way challenge of the latest (and greatest) A Muse Studio challenge.   In case you weren't paying attention, this time around the challenge is to make a card that is clean and simple.  That means filled with wide open spaces and limited layers and embellishments.

I know!  I know!  It makes me twitchy just thinking of it!  But if I can do it, you can do it!
Here is my first Clean and Simple card.  Some folks might say that cutting out the zig zags is not simple, but it is! You just snip at an angle one way they turn back around and snip at the other angle the other way.  Easy peasy!  After seeing this post I'm thinking that all 4 corners need to be rounded and not just the top.
This second card is one of my favorite sympathy card designs.  I added a strip of chevron paper behind it for a little oomph, but it does just fine without it too.

So those are my cards, why don't you make a CAS card and join in our challenge too?  There is a fabulous die set being given out to one lucky winner!

The Fine Print: Top card-Stamps and die from "Squeeze the Day," cardstock used orange and black chevron, inks used orange and Memento black.  Bottom card-Stamps from "Friend to Friend" and "Essential Sentiments," die from Butterfly Trio, cardstock used mermaid, mermaid chevron print, and sugar, inks used mermaid and Memento black, other items onyx pearls.
