TGIF! I am ready for the weekend! How about you?
Since it's Friday, that means Sharon Johnson has another great Stamp Simply challenge for you! The challenge today is CAS/BIO! What's that mean??? That means Clean and Simple, Black (or brown!) Ink Only! Can you handle it? No coloring allowed, and let the beauty of your papers and embellishments create the WOW factor!
Now, I will admit that as I made my card, the clean and simple part of the challenge kinda' flew out of my head! I honestly forgot about that part, so my card isn't too over the top, but I wouldn't call it clean and simple, either! Forgive me, and we'll trust that my Stamp Simply sisters have better inspiration to provide you with today!
I bought this sentiment stamp at a stamp store that I went to the with the Stamp Simply girls while in Shipshewana this past summer. I do not remember the name of the store, and I believe the owner made the stamps herself so unfortunately I can't tell you where it came from. This tree is from an Impression Obsession clear set, and my scrumptious gingham ribbon is from Sharon's ribbon store!On the inside I stamped the tree again in second generation, then stamped the sentiment.
Stop by Sharon's blog for her beautiful sample and all the challenge details, then stop and see what my Stamp Simply sisters have created today to also inspire you!
