I was able to play along with this week's challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays. The challenge was to use strips of color or pattern in your Clean and Simple creation. This one came together so easily. The strips were inspired by this card from Cristina.

It all started with the bitty strip of black and white striped paper. It was a scrap left over from a previous card and it was just sitting on my desk. It was too cute not to use so I found some other (s)crap laying on my table to go with it. The red strip was cut with my pinking shears.

I'm not sure if you can see it but there is a very subtle polka dot pattern on the tea pot. You look at it and you think it's just plain but then you look again and you notice the subtle pattern. Tricky! lol

Thanks for stopping by today! :)
