How to match the inside of your card with the outside!

When I make KISS Cards (or Clean and Simple), I like to keep a simple design, but have something on the card that POPS!  The Adorning Accents and Embossing here along with the glittery butterfly I think achieve this on today’s card.   Hope you are inspired!

    Darling card. I need to dig out that die and folder and try this. And I seem to prefer the knot to the bow these days (easier to mail). Love your creations.
