FTL 129 - You Rock!

Here is a card I made on Friday for the Clean and Simple Stamping FTL#129 sketch.  I really enjoyed it - except for the bow. I tried to leave it off (see sketch) and I'm sure I could of added some other sort of embellishment, but I really couldn't come up with one I liked, so I settled on the bow anyway.  I could of even left it off, but then it was missing something.........there was way too much discussion with myself about that bow!!

BUT.........I did use some of my new DCWV paper!  It's called "Citrus" and it's a matstack and I just LOVE all the papers inside of it!!!  For the next few days I'll be showing a few cards I made with it.   The stamp & sentiment is from Papertrey Ink!

Here's the Clean and Simple Sketch if you want to play along!!!



Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for your visit!

Oh good, I am not the only one who has major discussions with ones self about the card :) I love your card, Citrus is a favorite of mine during spring and summer. Love your card and the red of the image,the bow is just fine sitting there. I am thinking sitting on the front porch.

Maria, I LIKE that bow - it's just the right size. If it was any bigger, it'd be too big. Perfect! Also adore your card. Pretty paper and the sentiment and stamp together are "just right"!

I'm glad that you (and yourself) decided on the bow! Lol! I understand completely as I have those "talks" with myself all the time when I'm creating>

Gorgeous papers! These look great together. I love these chair stamps that are so popular right now. I think I need to go shopping.

You always have the most clever sentiments to go along with your stamping. :)
