kindness.....

Hello, friends!  A quick post with a card for  Less Is More  and Dynamic Duos.  This week is one layer week at Less is More.  The challenge is to make a one layer card with a flourish on it.  When I saw that I had to really think long and hard about what sets I had that might work for the challenge.   After looking through some of my set I settled on a Stampin Up! set "Vintage Fresh".  It was part of a super cute Sale-A-Bration bundle.  I was clever enough to make sure that I was a club hostess during SAB so I could get my hands on that little bundle!  The only problem with the set is that it doesn't contain any sentiments, so I used a sentiment from "Vintage Vogue".   Next I had to decide a color combo.   Then I remembered that the new color combo from Dynamic Duos was Regal Rose and Basic Grey and decided to go with that for the card.

I stamped the flourishy-floral image using Regal Rose and the sentiment using Grey Wool ink from Close to My Heart.   I got out my trusty Copic markers and custom colored some pearls in grey and rose to add a little bit of something extra to the card.  The layout is one of my tried and true favorites.   So, there you have it... another clean and simple card with lots of white space!

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! & Close to My Heart; Pearls:  KaiserCraft; Copic Markers
