Simply perfect


I would love to get really good at making simpler & elegant cards. I decided to give it a go using this bells and whistles stamp I adore. I’ve used it on boy and girl cards as well as non gender specific.  I stamped it in momento ink potters clay and colored it with copics. I wanted simple I really tried to not overdue it, especially since it’s a boy card. I didn’t even pull out any DSP. I am finding I love embossing folders; Nellie Snellen and Darice brands make beautiful ones. The ribbon is from my stash, and I liquid pearl in blue around the border. the leaves are from a MS punch called fronds. Here is a closer look at the image

and the inside is stamped with a Stampin UP set, sorry for the dark background.

I would like to enter my card in these challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room: Oh Baby!
