Lucky Clean & Simple

I'm back from my business trip and so glad to have had a snow day today. I know. I know. Everyone is sick of winter and snow. Not me! I'm still thrilled every time it snows and I love the bonus of a snow day!   

Today I'm playing along with the Addicted to CAS crew. The codeword for the challenge is LUCK. Well, it is St. Patrick's Day, but I don't really celebrate it and I don't have any St. Paddy's day stamps. I wanted to go for something that was less obvious that green leprechauns and pots of gold. I was having trouble coming up with something, so I looked up the word "luck" on the online dictionary. I found that a synonym for "luck" is "blessing" and I do have the "Blessings from Heaven" set that I love, but rarely use.

I went way off the obvious and used Blushing Bride, Whisper White, and Basic Black. I think this color combination lends itself to clean and simple. Of course, I can't leave the blank background blank, so I embossed the Blushing Bride panel with one of my favorite embossing folders: Perfect Polka Dots. I also thought the Whisper White Organza Ribbon was a little lost, so I tied on a piece of Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
