Clean and Simple w/Frantic Stamper

It's World Cardmaking Day! What are you working on? I have several cards in the works. This card is a scraplift from the internet. I wish I could remember the site I got my inspiration from but can I just say, "I LOVE THIS CARD!" I've been told my style is clean and simple but I don't see it that way. I love adding bling, colored digis and sentiments. In my mind that is not clean and simple but this card is.

I started with my usual 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch base. Using a large Spellbinders Nestabilities circle die, I embossed it into the center of the base. I inked the innermost circle to highlight it.  Next I added a die cut of two of the Three Wise Men Silhouette from Frantic Stamper Inc. Using a small circle die, I cut a "moon" out of glitter paper and used silver foil paper cut the word Peace from  Frantic Stamper Inc. Finally I used an Anna Griffin small star punch for a final bit of decoration. It was fast, it was easy and I love it. I did have to make it into a tent card. My white cardstock doesn't have a lot of "umph" to it and doesn't want to stand on it's own. So I channeled my "inner Tim Gunn" and made it work. I hope you like it and maybe it'll inspire you too, to make something for World Cardmaking Day!
UPDATE: I take most of my photos inside and usually in the bathroom. I wanted to see if taking them outside would make that much of a difference. Of course the background change didn't hurt!
