Simply Said


Happy Friday! For this week's Blogger's Challenge, Lisa asked us to use Sage Shadow, Brown, and a neutral. I pulled out an oldie, but goodie set from Stampin' Up called Simply Said. It's still in the current catty, but it has been around for awhile. It's one of my favorites! My flower image is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White. I stamped the Linen background onto the Sage Shadow panel and then the sentiment in Chocolate Chip. Then I added a little bit of faux stitching in each corner. The strip of Chocolate Chip has a row of faux stitching on the top and bottom and a piece of May Arts Polka Dot ribbon tied to it. I finished the card off with a little bit of sponging and a tiny bit of Star Dust Stickles.

For more inspiration with this beautiful color combination, just click here. I'm sure you'll like what the other ladies have come up with! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit...Toodles! :D

The polka dot ribbon adds just the right touch to this card. Simply Said is not my favorite stamp set, but I really like what you've done with it!!
