Simple Joys



Here's another card with the Green Thumb stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. I am really loving this set. I haven't even used half of the stamps in this set yet! I thought I would make a "Springy" card even though it's freezing here! :) These flowers reminded me of "blowing wishes" with dandelions. So soft and pretty. That's why I picked that sentiment as well. . .a simple joy such as "blowing wishes" was one of my favorite things as a kid. It's funny how embellishments get added sometimes. I have to tell you that I got a smudge of ink from my finger on the focal point of the card, so I punched a piece of pink cardstock with the word window punch (and added the purple brads) to hide the smudge. This was the second try on this because I had ink smudges ALL over the first one since I was too impatient to let the ink dry, and I wasn't about to start over a third time! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Green Thumb and Butterfly Kisses from Papertrey Ink; Ink- VersaMagic DewDrops in Midnight Black, Pixie Dust, Aloe Vera and Spring Pansy; Paper- DCWV pink, purple, SU Whisper White; Accessories- Making Memories brads, word window punch, horizontal slot punch, Offray ribbon.

Charmaine, isn't it great how "mistakes" become beautiful design features? The word window punch looks like it was meant to be there! Great addition!
Good "talking" today!
Smiles,

What a beautiful card! Clever disguise of the smudge. It looks as though you planned the card that way. I love your creations.

You can even make purple look good! I remember blowing wishes as well. We called it "Pusteblume" (blowing flower). Thanks for making me smile!

That's beautiful! What I like most about this card is that the cute saying is in Black ink and really stands out against the flowers. Great choice!! :0) Love it!
