"Easy as 1, 2, 3" at CIE

Hello! The new challenge at Cards In Envy blog is "Easy as 1, 2, 3" -- create a simple, plain card. Clean and simple is definitely a challenge for me. Simple and plain certainly goes well with nice, flat Cards In Envy cards -- no extra postage due lol. Here's my card:

Sentiment: Stampabilities
DP: Authentique
Marvy button punch
Normally I'd put a bit of twine in the button, but I was trying to be good and not embellish...maybe I'll add it later!
Thanks for stopping by; have fun!
