Clean and Simple for Digital Pencil Challenge

I wanted to play in this week's challenge at digital pencil, the challenge is CAS and I thought that is easy  enough, as I think my cards tend to be sort of CAS .Well, I have to admit, this card took me forever to make,and I am still not 100 % happy with it. I think it is missing the sewing, but I wanted to keep it simpler, so I just did paper piercing instead. 

Sorry about the bad photo, the sun is going down, and unfortunately I won't have time to photograph it tomorrow, as I will be pretty much out of the house all day.

The image I used today is called "for a teacher". Another one of my favorite Mo Manning images. It can be found HERE. 
I colored the image using my faber castell polychromos pencils. Papers are from my minds eye and dcwv. Card stock is stampin up and neenah.

Kept it pretty simple, just added a little ribbon and a flower, and a little flourish (made with whimsy's leafy corner die set) for embellishments.

Just playing in a few challenges today

Gorgeous card, Ellie! I think you can be happy with it, but I understand what you mean as I have the same feeling on most of my cards, too! ;-) Love the colours as well as the intersting layout!

Hope you liked my CAS challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil this week. Thanks for playing along!
