So quick and easy.

Hello Everyone and just a quick post from me today as it's one of those "chasing your tail" kind of weeks.

I made three similar DL cards last week using the same Paper Artsy stamp set although I varied the design a little and all the sentiments were different.

I stamped with black archival ink onto some kraft paper then added a bit of detail with a white gell pen.

The large flower was from the same set and was stamped onto patterned paper, fussy cut and after inking the edges I stuck it over the stem of flowers.

The centre of the flower is punched from the card, where I put the sentiment and I used a little button from my stash.

I matted onto  a strip of black card and cut the bottom with fancy scissors.

I would like to enter my card into Miss Di's Snippets Playground - Week 249  and also Brown Sugar Challenge #218 where the theme is Anything goes
