High Hopes Challenge - Clean and Simple

Howdy -

today the challenge over at High Hopes blog is Clean and Simple. For me that isn't so simple. I have such a hard time leaving it - and not adding ribbon, buttons, flowers anything - But I did it and walked away. I think I am going to call this the Clean and Hard challenge.

This is "April and Mr. Waddles"

I hadn't gotten a chance to ink this one up and this was a great chance. I colored with my Copics ( colors below ) 

My papers are First Edition Blank Canvas. Nice cool colors. I just chose two patterns. A peach card stock for the base. 

The sentiment is also High Hopes - A fun sentiment "When life gives you a rainy day... Remember to play in the puddles!!"

I then added some sparkles to the "rain" - still clean right? But man I wanted to add a a ribbon and I had these great buttons... but I stopped as much as I wanted to add them. 

The inside is simple with left over papers.

And here are the Copic colors.

Hope you will join us over at the High Hopes challenge - Pop over and see the other DT Simple work, and then join us.

Sorry it is short today - was a really rough night last night. Having a hard time focusing today -

Hope you are having a good day - a blessed day -
HUGS and
