{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Keep It Clean and Simple with Kelly Purkey



Welcome to the first Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in November! This week's challenge is Keeping It Clean and Simple (CAS) featuring Kelly Purkey Exclusives. You don't have to use Kelly Purkey Exclusives but your projects need to be clean and simple!


I used the Sizzle On stamp set to create my card. I heat embossed the two pieces of bacon, sponged four distress inks on them, then trimmed and adhered them to the card in layers, with Scor-Tape, glue dots and foam tape. The bacon is perfectly crispy and slightly burned, just the way I like it. Yup, bacon definitely makes everything better. My husband said this was a very yummy-looking card and my son laughed, then asked why I put bacon on a card. ;)


One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!


It could be you!




I hope you will play along with us this week!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)
