Simple but fun...

This weeks CPS49 sketch challenge was actually quite challenging considering the simple design... I have a hard time limiting myself but I think I may have done it with today's card.



I had fun trying to create my border to split the card... And I grabbed another one of the stamps out of my SAB set So Many Scallops to help create my flowers alonge with the sentiment in the center of them...

I also played with one of my new tools, my crop-a-dile. I love to be able to set eyelets now with out the loud noise of a hammer. I placed a small amount of glue in the center of the eyelet and added to glitter. Well I'm off today to see how much I can get done for tomorrow.. it is my DH birthday and I hope I can make my card for tomorrow tonight and post it first thing tomorrow cause I'll be running all over the place tomorrow... have a great afternoon.

Supplies:
Stamps: fancy pants simply stated, So Many Scallops
Ink: Always Artichoke, rose red
Cardstock: Old Olive, Fall flowers DP, Whisper white
Accessories: Crop-a-dile, jumbo eyelet pewter, glitter

Very cute. Even though it is simple, I know it couldn't have been simple cutting the DP! Great job.
