A Clean and Simple Card

If you like to make quick cards, simple but elegant cards, great cards you MUST check out this site Clean and Simple Stamping. Every week there is a new sketch to follow. Always easy, always beautiful and always lots of inspiration. I've been watching this site for awhile now and I finally decided to jump in and post my card.
I chose this image and sentiment from PaperTrey's On My Couch set. I colored with Copics and used my blender to give it a distressed leather/faux suede look. You decide.
I cut it out using Nestabilities and then mounted it on a scrap of fuzzy textured paper. The sentiment is stamped on some handmade paper and mounted onto a kraft card base. Very organic. I think this might end up being my nephew's Fathers Day card. He's about to become a Dad for the first time and life as he knows it is about to end. Hehe.
Hope you like my take on this sketch and thanks for stopping by.
