Simple SC168

This weeks Sketch Challenge at SCS had me stumped. I came up with this card, but I'm not happy with it, us the picture turned out even worse. All of the colours are quite vibrant but I couldn't get that to come through in the photos without making something else look weird. I got my inspiration from Nancy's card here, but I definitely did not do it justice at all. Check hers out though to see what I think is the best submission for this weeks challenge.

I say this card is simple just because there was very little involved in it as I only used paper and one stamp - no embellishments at all (although I did consider it)! Looks quite plain too.

All of the designer papers are from the Provo Craft "Celebrations" paper set for use with the Cricut and the cardstocck I believe is Bazzill Basics. The stamp is from the $1.50 sets at Michaels used with Inkadinkadoo ink in red.

Maybe you can relate? I find that as soon as I have an order on the way of new stamps or ink or general stamping supplies - my mind can only think of things to do with those sets. That's my excuse anyway for the above card. Just waiting on my newest SU order which will be huge!

Allison, I'm not sure what your talking about ... I think your card is excellent! I love the bright celebratory colors! Thank you so much for the very nice compliment and the link! You are too kind!
