Happy Tuesday All!

I haven`t entered anything in the Clean and Simple Stamping challenge for quite a while now so I thought it was high time I had another go. This is the layout we were given;

And here is my take on it.
A very simple card but one of those that just simply fell into place ( doesn`t happen very often).

I used the largest stamp from Inkadinkado`s Birds Galore stamp set and inked it up with Versa colour Orchid.
I was lucky enough to find a scrap of Pink Petticoat paper already printed up in my scrap box and it matches almost perfectly. Even the dots go with the stamp.
I`ve changed the position of the sentiment, which is Papertreys Autumn Blessings because I wanted to use the same colour ink.
All in all I`m pretty chuffed with this one.

Well I hope all of you in the UK enjoyed your Bank holiday. I`m sure it would have been better if the weather had played along but then, when do we ever get good weather for August bank holiday? I had to work ofcourse, along with many others and we were quite busy in the shop. I can never understand why people get an extra day off work and spend it shopping. I`m sure I could have found something much more exciting to do.

Thank for popping in...Lynne xxx

  5. Beautiful card Lynne, lovely colours. I had a lovely bank holiday thanks. I agree about the shopping, much better things to do. I hate to tell you though, the sun shone all weekend here in West Sussex. xxx

  6. I love the simplicity of this and the way your stamped image matches the dp. We were in West Somerset for bank holiday and it was wall to wall sunshine there!
