A Simple Life

As I've mentioned before, gaining inspiration from other crafters is one of the very best things about being par of the crafting community.  It's so much fun to visit Pinterest and our favorite blogs to see what great ideas I can gain inspiration from.  And in doing so, I always make sure to give credit where credit is due, and such is the case with this card.  I totally lifted this card from Melissa Phillips.  I really love this Twig Wreath stamp set, and she has so many cute cards using it.  So....I just recreated her card and put my own spin on it.
I just love this.  I used a piece of Crate Paper patterned paper at the top, and white card stock on the bottom.  I stamped everything with stamps from the PTI stamp set called Twig Wreath.  I used all Tim Holtz Distress Inks, added a piece of lace at the top, and tucked in a small white seam binding bow and a red stick pin.  
I'm going to be linking my card in these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Anything Goes"

Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge - Simon Says "Stamptember - Stamp It" - I enjoy stamping on my cards, and on this particular card I used a PTI stamp set.

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Anything Goes With a Sentiment - I always love including a sentiment on my cards.  For this one, I used a hand-stamped sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I would really appreciate your comments on my card, and I look forward to seeing all your sweet creations this week as well.

Blessings to you,
