I like color, but there is something about a plain white card that simply "sends me", for lack of a better description.

What exactly is it that jazzes me so much about a plain white card?

  • Almost any image used gets the spotlight, no matter how small
  • Any colors used immediately become crisp and attention-getting
  • It’s quick
  • It creates a sense of refinement
  • It conveys the idea of clean and refreshing in a visual way

Call me crazy, but, it truly is my favorite!

Here’s one I meant to share a while back–it’s a 5MQ (Five Minute Quickie).  I tell ya’, I was bouncin’ off my chair, I was so pleased with how it turned out!



I thought about coloring the trees.  I really did.  But, I told myself to leave ‘em be because I liked it so SO much just like this.  Aaaaaaah.  So glad I listened to the little voices in my head!   Yes.  I confess.  There are little voices in my head . . .   But, I suppose you knew that, eh?!   *chortle*
