FS82 NikiE

It has been a LONG while since I've done a challenge on Splitcoast. My husband needed some thank you cards, and I needed some inspiration this morning, so I checked out the Featured Stamper Challenge. Today's Featured Stamper is NikiE (or Niki Estes). I just LOVE Niki's work and knew I would find the perfect card to CASE and make thank you cards for my husband! I chose this beautifully simple card of Niki's. I changed the stamps and the colors for my version. My husband doesn't like "busy" or "cute" cards. He just wants it to say what he wants to say in a clean and simple way. Hopefully this is clean and simple enough for him! We have our first performance of our cabaret tonight, so I'm hoping to finish these cards before having to get ready. Here's hoping! Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful Labor Day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Cute & Curly (SU); Ink- Dark Brown (Fluid Chalk Ink); Paper- Kraft, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink), white (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- brads (Making Memories), paper piercer, Argyle Cuttlebug Folder (Provocraft), Curly Label punch (SU); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
