Core'dinations Hard Core Crop 2013 - Clean and Simple Challenge

It' that time again! Time for the annual  Core'dinations Hard Core Crop. Once again I am hosting a challenge for the crop.
The challenges will post between Nov 1 and Nov 3 and can all be found on the Master Challenge List.

As many of you many know, my newest book  Clean & Simple Cards just came out in October. In that book you will find over 50 cards--many of which were made using Core'dinations cardstock. So, in celebration I am throwing out a clean and simple challenge and the winner will get a copy of this new book.

 Clean and Simple Cards Book by Tami Mayberry

My challenge to you is to create a clean and simple holiday card that uses ONLY:
 a sentiment 
no more than two embellishments
any tools of your choosing
and, of course, 
Core'dinations cardstock 

Below is my card for the challenge. I used Core'dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection cardstock, and for the two embellishments I used May Arts green burlap string and a wooden button.


Wooden button
Sizzix Big Shot die-cutting machine
Fiskars corner rounder
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesives: EZ runner, 3D foam squares
