FTL 93


I discovered a good challenge blog this weekend, Clean &Simple Stamping.
I love the sketch too, and have used it frequently in the past, so I decided to play along.

Isn't it pretty? I changed the placement of the sentiment, but I'm sure that's okay, because all those cream buttons took up space! Go check out all the entries so far...really pretty cards!


Stamps used: Cornish Heritage Farms Silhouette Blooms I (from the Kim Hughes collection)
Ink used: L'Amour Red Palette Hybrid, Sahara Sand Versamagic Chalk ink, Fawn by Impress.
Paper: Kraft, rustic cream, pure poppy by PTI.


So did everyone have a nice weekend? We had rain on and off, but the parade and the Dairy Festival was fun!




Thanks for stopping by today, Have a good start to your week!
