I have the wonderful chance to make a card for a very special lady who has been an incredible inspiration to me. I don't want to reveal her name here because I'd like for it to be a surprise (in case she checks in here at TSB!) So, I thought I would use this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge: KISS and keep it simple. For colors, I used Julee Tilman's very fun combo of orange, aqua, and green to come up with what I hope will be a card to bring a smile to my fab friend's lovely face.
Inspired not only by the colors of Julee's color challenge, but also the challenge color icon, I started the card with these three pretty flowers from an old favorite set, Eastern Blooms. I love this stamp because the blooms are already lined up, so I had a very easy time stamping out fairly evenly spaced images. Next, I added a matching white piece of background cardstock and then popped out the entire panel over my white card base. I stamped my perfect sentiment below and I had a very clean and simple card to send.
