K.I.S.S card

Hello all!
well, after yesterday's card of many bits, I'm back with something a bit more familiar to me.  Keep it simple silly (stupid seems a bit harsh!).  I would like to thank you for your comments and advice on this card - it's great to hear what other people think, especially if you've been obsessing over things!

       Anyway, this card is definitely a K.I.S.S card and was done using my fabulous Silhouette Cameo - I do so love that machine :)  I'm also a fan of all the "Keep Calm" stuff and so decided to incorporate that into a Christmas card.  I used the actual Keep Calm font which I had downloaded from one of the many free font sites out there and made a bauble shape just by merging a circle and a small rounded corner rectangle.  The silver cardstock was backed with red to give it some punch and then I simply added a ribbon on the top - oh, nearly forgot the heat embossed edging of Stampendous white powder to give it a snow-kissed look!

 
I would like to enter this into the challenges at -
 

 
Thanks for popping in :)

Lol, I agree...silly is a much better word than stupid. And your CAS card is fab! Love the sentiment! Thank you for the reminder.

What a fabulous card, Dawn! I love the red behind the fun sentiment, the bow, and the simple design--very unique! And way cool! :^)
Hugs, Penny
P.S. I like "silly" better than "stupid", too! ;^) And I still think yesterday's card was perfect!

Gorgeous card, Dawn! I love, love, love that ornament shape you created! I had to run the laptop to my hubby so he could see you made that with your Cameo. I only hope I can create something near as beautiful as yours with mine. The snow kissed look you added looks amazing :)

Love and hugs to you my DT Sistah!
