Bugs 'n' Kisses

I think that of the four cards I created on Sunday, this one is my favourite. The stamp set is quite old and I got it for free in issue number 83 of Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine. It's a Pink Petticoat clear stamp set.

It is truly amazing to me how true the saying, 'out of sight, out of mind', is. I discovered a wealth of crafting things this weekend because I decided to dig through things. I have soooooooo much ribbon (and an unposted ribbon storage idea), embellishments, and even stamps that have never been used before. It's ridiculous. The stamp set is one of them.

Before I continue with my supply list, I have to tell you about the challenge blog that inspired this card. The Card Concept currently has a colour challenge going, it was right up my alley!

So one of the things about The Card Concept, is that you need to explain what style card you've made. I'm hoping this has qualified under clean and Simple? there is a lot of white space.....

The big brown flower is by Petaloo and comes from their Pennylane Garden collection. The smaller flowers are unbranded (I have complained about this before - scrapbook stores should label these flowers even if they are breaking them into smaller packs...)

The image(s) is coloured with promarkers and was stamped with a black Pretty Color stamp pad.

The inside was finished with a single bug. also coloured with Promarkers.

Thanks for stopping by!
