Clean and Simple in Brown and Red ...

Pin It

Happy Friday, campers!

Today's card project was created for SCS's "Clean and Simple" Design Team search. Designers must create a card following a sketch, a color combination, and/or an autumn-themed holiday. This card was created following the monochromatic challenge.

For all the brown-with-some-red deets, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo.

I stamped my flower image with the help of a SAMJ twice in Chocolate Chip ink and once with Riding Hood Red ink on Kraft card stock. I stamped my sentiment, added three vintage buttons, and finis! So easy, even I could do it!

TIP: For even placement of stamped images, draw a straight line in pencil, stamp, then erase your pencil marks.

For all of the tres exciting product info, check out the supply list, below.

Sooooooooo, yesterday Sheila decided it was time to teach her niece, Bailey, how to drive. On their way, someone decided they needed to take me along for the ride.

Since my Momma didn't raise no fool, I jumped in the back seat, leaving Sheila to ride shotgun up front in the death seat.

We circled the neighborhood, then once Bailey felt comfortable, we headed into the Village.

At a busy intersection, Sheila said, "Turn left here, Bailey. And don't forget to let the people behind you know what you're doing."

Bailey turned to me sitting in the back seat and announced, "Deb: I'm going left."

I'm still giggling!
