I may have gotten carried away with color when I created this card. It started out pretty simple - a sentiment with three cupcakes. Then I decided to add some washi tape along the bottom. Then I thought I'd add fun little enamel dots to not just one, but all three cupcakes. And then I thought it would be fun to punch out alternating cupcake wrappers. But, I wasn't done yet....I added baker's twine. SO.....my question to you is.....did I go too far???
Have you ever done that when crafting? You just think....one more little something-or-other will make it look better. And you can't help yourself....you add something else....and maybe even something else! And before you know it, it looks like a craft store threw up on your project.
I'm certainly learning that KISS is definitely a good acronym to remember: Keep It Simple, Stupid. I think I've heard nicer variations of that saying, but when I'm talking to myself, that's my mantra. I didn't listen this time. I challenge you to KISS!
