Clean and Simple...Me?


My cards haven't really been as clean and simple lately as they were in the past. However, when I do swaps for my stamp club, I can't duplicate some of these cards 6 times. So, I have to ratchet it down a few notches. I have to get back to my roots, so to speak! The parameters for this month's swap were to follow one of the sketch challenges on SCS. Our February host, Katie, chose SC119 and it was one that I had done before, but I wanted to try out my new Bella's Blooms set. The colors came out nicely, and I was quite pleased with the card. You won't believe my list of accessories on this one...one thing! YIKES! Can it be?

Card Details:

Stamps: Bella's Blooms and Whimsy jumbo wheel by SU

Paper: Pink Piroette, Riding Hood Red DSP, Chocolate Chip

Ink: Riding Hood Red ink pad, Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss markers to color image

Accessories: Spica pen
