Stamp Simply #102 - ABC's and 123's

Happy Friday everyone! Time for another Stamp Simply challenge from Sharon Johnson! This week, Sharon and her husband Steve are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, so in honor of that we're creating cards with a number or letter in prominence on the card front. Think about milestone anniversary and birthday cards you see in the store with numbers on the front, or a monogrammed notecard!

My design is fairly simple, and my cardfront was already made-up and ditched as an idea for another card earlier this week, so this came together quickly and easily. I added a little ribbon that I picked up last night at (of all places!) WalMart and my card is finished! I even finished the inside, which you can see peeking out.
We bid a tearful farewell to our September Guest Designer Charlene Merrick, and welcome our October Guest Designer, Amy Rohl! Stop by Sharon's blog for all the details and her stunning creation (and wish her and Steve a Happy Anniversary!) and be sure to see what the other Stamp Simply girls have created to inspire you!
