WSC43 & CC161

I chickened out on the color challenge last week -- Real Red, Night of Navy, and Glorious Green. I could not think of anything but Christmas. Then I saw Beate's Weekend sketch challenge and her Thumping technique post and a light bulb went off.


Sometimes I think my stampin' ladies get overwhelmed with all the layers that I normally do on my cards. This is a really simple card, anyone could do this card. I colored the Pretty Petal background stamp with my markers and then stamped it on whisper white -- that's it. I colored the happy birthday stamp too. So what do you think cute huh? Looks like I need to change the blade on my cutter -- yuck.

Stamps: Pretty Petal (BG)
Inks: Real Red, Night of Navy, Glorious Green (all markers)
Paper: Night of Navy, Glorious Green, Whisper White
Extras: None

Pretty! I'm with you on the simple. Most of my customers want cute and simple. They appreciate the more elaborate cards but most of them aren't going to make them.

What a great card! Love the colors :) So....your cutter blade did that to the edges?? It looks like you did it on purpose.

Beautifully done, Corie. It does not look like Christmas at all! I like the simplicity of it. You let the background pattern speak. Very beautiful!
