Holiday Clean and Graphic

Happy Thursday! Today I'm playing along with the Moxie Fab Stretch Your Holiday Style: A Clean & Graphic Challenge. I know Christmas is still a ways off, but it's never too early to work on my holiday stash. Here is my attempt... Clean and graphic style is described as having white space, clean lines, and simple treatment of text. The purpose of these challenges is to stretch your own style and use styles you would not usually create with. For my card I went with a design that I would not normally think to use for a Christmas/Holiday card. I really like the way the "mod" flower turned out, it's funky and fun!

So what do you think, would you call this clean and graphic? So stop on by the Moxie Fab World Blog and check out all the other challenges going on there too. Maybe you can give them a try!
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. Yes, I think it's clean and graphic :o) But it's real cute too, I like the PP you used, it matches well! I dunno, I feel if it's not anytime close around the holidays I really can't make a holiday card, hehe...I tried and it took me several hours to even think of something :o[ I have a feeling this might be a winner :D

  5. I would say both and add modernly beautiful. This card is wonderful and would be a conversational piece for the lucky recipient that displays this card on their mantle. Great choice of dp.
