Oh So Simple

Good morning I am up bright and early, been awake since 4 so I thought I may as well be up in my craft room than tossing and turning!

Today's card is a very simple one made with one of my favourite stamps.  Its funny how we have stamps and digis that we have bought and then never used but others that are old favourites and we love to use!


The stamp is a Penny Black one that I have had a few years, I stamped it in Versafine on white llinen card and added a bit of Stardust Stickles to the flower heads.  I then cut some black card with Dienamics bracket die and embossed it (you can just see the embossing on the left).  I matted it on some black card and added the twine and button.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Monochromatic + Ribbon/Trim
Inky Impressions - Bingo (Bottom line - die cut, button and twine)

That's it from me for today, just a simple card.  I have to take my husband up to the hospital at 0800 as he is having a fluorescein Angiography today very quick he only saw the consultant yesterday but they are concerned about his right eye.

Thanks for visiting me today I will see you tomorrow, take care xx

Hope all goes well with your husbands tests. It must be a trying time for both of you.
No wonder you couldn't sleep.

Great card. I can see why that is a fave stamp. It is really versatile! I like the way you did the diecut as a topper and added the twine. Looks good!
