IS THIS TOO SIMPLE?

Hi there,
Yes, I am posting. Had to use my dh's computer last night to scan my card and, because it was quite late already, I emailed them to myself so that I can do this this morning.

What do you think? Is this card too simple? My reason for making a simple card is that mailing cards with lots of layers and embellishments can become somewhat costly. But I am trying to make a pretty card without too many extras.
Details:
Cardstock: Choc. Chip, Confetti White
Ink: Sponging: Close to cocoa.
Stamping: Craft Choc. Chip
Stamp: Nativity, no name on it. I've had it for over 10 years.
Other: Round punch for corners, small circle punch for gold cord.

I don't think that it is too simple. I think that you did a wonderful job of sprucing it up without all the bulk. :0)

I don't think it's simple at all, well, it's simple, but not plain. It's very pretty!

It is simple, but it is GORGEOUS! I love it! Simplicity at it's best I say. Now if only I can make simpler cards I too wouldn't have to spend so much on mailing them out. :S

I think it looks beautiful. Maybe try adding one more layer or some glitter? I love how you sponged the oval to create a special focus on the nativity. Great job!

I think it looks great. The simplicity helps keep the focus right on the picture, a wonderful symbol of the holiday.

It is beautiful in its simplicity,and the focus is right where it should be. Since you asked for our opinions I'll give you mine: I miss something more. Not a lot more ;-), but perhaps just a swirly "Seasons greetings" or "Happy Christmas" in the right hand corner below the picture.

I would also love to see how this card would look in a deep purple, night blue colour.I think it would look devine!
You have made a great job with the distressing around the the card and the motif.
Great work!
