Stamp Simply #105

Happy Friday Everyone!!! Today's Stamp Simply Challenge hosted by the lovely Sharon Johnson, is to "keep it simple" and use only "black or brown ink" ... let your designer paper POP!



Actually, the only ink I have used on my card is for the sentiment at the bottom ... and that is Versafine Black and detail clear embossing powder. The verse is from the Hero Arts "friends" set.




My image is cut from a 12x12 sheet of Graphic45 designer paper ... the Fashionista Collection. The gold matting & flower is a piece of gold dp from the Basic Grey ... Two Scoops pack. The flowers were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and the ribbon is by Darice. I just happened to have this polka dot brad in my box of brads (sorry don't know who it's by) but it matched perfectly so I just had to use it. The vintage floral designer paper had no name on the back and I've had it for a very long time and can't remember where I picked it up either. You know how it is when you are a "paper hoarder" ...




I hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow when I'll have another creation and an ANNOUNCEMENT to share with you!! Have a great day!!!
