live fully...

Hello friends!  Quick post with a card that I made using the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch.  Went really super CAS with this one.  Was thinking about popping this into the current CAS-ual Fridays color challenge of aqua, green and orange, but not too sure these color really fit the color criteria... what do you think? 


All stamps and the die are from Penny Black.  I just love that "in a row" die from Penny Black.  I paired the stamps and die with some fun papers from two different My Mind's Eye paper pads from the new Cut & Paste line.  Love my My Mind's Eye 6x6 pads!!  The stamps are Winter Berries (4273K) and eloquence (30-162).   I used a sheet of ombre paper from one of the pads (don't remember which one) and cut it down to fit the card front.  I rotated the Winter Berries stamp slightly so that the image would be oriented in the way I wanted and then stamped it using Tuxedo Black ink.   The sentiment was also stamped using Tuxedo Black.  The "in a row" piece was cut from another ombre sheet and then adhered using pop dots.  Like I said... super simple. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Penny Black; Die:  Penny Black; PP:  My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste Adorbs & Charm
