Pink & sweet and worn around the edges

That's my take on this week's Clean & Simple challenge to find something in the Winnie the Pooh section of the site. Now I probably should admit that I'm not a big cartoon/Disney/cutesy-kidsy fan but with that said, I do have a sort of soft spot for Piglet. Those little pink stripes can grow on ya! So Piglet it is for my inspiration today!

To make this I pulled out a long-ago retired background called Simple Stripes (circa 2004) to do my horizontal stripe thing. Added a pink Daisy from the Daisies #2 die and the Big Shot, and a birthday sentiment with some dots of pink glitter- trying to keep it sweet and simple just like Piglet. I decided to scruff up the edges for a worn feel just like a favorite old stuffed animal would have. Yes I know my dots of glitter are not uniform- maybe I was going for the "my kid did it" look!

So what do you think?? Simple enough?

Thanks for stopping by!
