A Treasured Birthday...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo

It's Monday! The rugrat is off for Spring Break this week, so I have very limited amounts of time to stamp. I found inspiration from the Clean and Simple Sketch over at the Paper Players, which is always a big help when pressed for time! I wanted to make something quick yet elegant and I pulled out the new Treasure Life set from Taylored Expressions to help me out. From start to finish, this card took about 20 minutes, which included rooting around my stash to find the ribbon!
I stamped the pretty apothecary jar silhouettes directly onto the rich patterned paper and stamped the nice and simple sentiment in an off-white chalk ink. The "shelf" on which the jars rest is just the scalloped border trimmed from the same patterned paper and adhered directly below. A nice ribbon in the corner, and I was all done with a soothing card amidst the chaos!

Regina, isn't it wonderful being able to escape to your stamping space!:-) I love what you did with the sketch. Stamping the apothecary jars directly onto the DSP was a fabulous idea. Gorgeous colors! I love the beautiful bow accessory.
So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week and shared this fabulous card.
