You're the best!

In blog hopping from one blog to another, following one inspiration after another, I came across Clean & Simple (CAS) Stamping and used the sketch for a card. I went to the craft table and tried a couple of stamps, but didn't like what I saw. Then, I remembered a card Vicky had made and I knew what to do.

Here's what I created:

Supplies used: Stamps - CTMH Tickled Pink, Papertrey Ink Handwritten Notes; CTMH inks - petal, hydrangea, blush, watermelon, ocean.

I tried to do that technique where you fully ink the stamp in the lighter ink, then roll the stamp in the darker ink. I'm not so sure I like that better than dabbing with a dauber, but I left it. I used a square punch to punch them out, purposely trying to cut off some of the flower petals and be off center (like Vicky did). 

I guess this card could be used for congratulations or as a thank you card. Simple and sweet.

Thanks for stopping by today!
