Simple Smile

Today's Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS called for you to use small stamps. . .stamps that were 1.5" square or smaller. For me, unless I use small stamps for a background, my cards made with small stamps are always very simple. I used the Good Times set, which was one of my FAVORITES, but strangely, I never used it very much! I guess I never felt like I was "doing enough" if I made a card as simple as this. Honestly I LOVE when I see very simple cards like this, though. They're like a breath of fresh air. . .you don't have to think about it, you can just enjoy it! I colored the tulips in with a pink Prismacolor marker and added Stardust Stickles on top to give it some sparkle. The sentiment was stamped and punched out with a small circle punch to add a little dimension. The polka dot organdy ribbon is from Doodliedoo! I hope this brings you a smile today! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Good Times; Paper- DCWV; Ink- Basic Black; Accessories- Light Green Polka Dot Organdy ribbon, small circle punch, Prismacolor markers, Stardust Stickles.

just thinking about participating in today's challenge gives me the hives! You know me, there is no way I could make such a simple beautiful card! Me and "simple" just don't seem to mix, I'm sad to say! Love this card--it's so bright and cheerful, just like you!
