I read the results of a recent scientific study the other day and am excited to share them with you.  The gist is that a cluttered or less neat space promotes creativity and thinking out of the box.  And a neat space promotes following the rules.  Obviously there is a time for both of these.  I’m just glad that the way I keep my creative space is in line with being more creative! 🙂  I really do love my job!

I was so pleased with this news, that I created a little meme:

Cleanliness kills creativity - from theartfulinker.com

You can quote me on that!

Today, I’m creating with Guy Greetings and PPA280

Guy Greetings for PPA280 from theartfulinker.com

My card base is Basic Black and over that is a partial layer of Crumb Cake.

Next, I added a layer of Timeless Elegance designer paper.  You’ll notice that the border around the two layers are different sizes.  I think this adds a little interest.

Typeset designer paper was used for the narrow horizontal stripe.  I like the way the words look like design when they’re turned on their side.

After stamping the great car from Guy Greetings on Very Vanilla, I cut out the image with the Circles framelits.

Guy Greetings makes a nice masculine card.

    A great masculine card. The tree bark is such a great detail.
