Simple Beauty

This card was made using the SOTM Simple Beauty set. The "thank you" is from the For Every Occassion set. I think the idea for this came from the one of the BBs, but honestly right now, I cannot remember. So if this was your original design, thank you!

I stamped the Simple Beauty stamp in black and colored it in using markers. I don't use markers much so it was kinda fun and very different! The marker colors I used were Garden Green, Petal, Barn Red and Hollyhock. (I also don't have a lot of markers yet, lol!) The cardstock colors are Hollyhock, Petal and White Daisy and all the edges are edged in Chocolate ink. And I tore the complete edge of the card. So the "Thank You" phrase on the front is actually stamped on several layers. Then because we have clear stamps, I was able to re-position the "Thank You" almost perfectly over what was already there on the inside of the card, and stamp that phrase again.

I also added a few Sparkles for a little extra bling and tied White Organdy Ribbon around the card as well.

Solo F

This card uses the Solo F in our Alphabet Solos collection. The paper is from the Groovy Blossoms Level 2 Paper Packet. The stamps are stamped in Hollyhock and the word "friends" on the bottom is stamped also in Hollyhock, just in second generation. The colors in the paper are Breeze, Sweet Leaf, Hollyhock, Cocoa and White Daisy. The large F is also up on pop dots for a little dimension.
