The KISS principle at work.

I am not sure about you, but lately, I've been enjoying using the KISS principle when it comes to card making and scrapbooking. Since my design school days, my style has always been fairly linear, with clean lines and a firm direct approach at my subject. Although I sometimes enjoy looking at over embellished, decor heavy styles, I still like my stuff to be to the point and concise, I like to not have you search all over my pages or cards to find the meaning, to me it looses it's appeal.
Anyhow, enough preaching, what do you think. Keeping It Simple Sweetie (and Straightforward too) seems to be working for me. Not much clutter and still pretty right?

Just another simple card, a couple of layers, and plenty of meaning.

Ok, I must run for the day, Cheers everyone!
