Beate Weekend Sketch #60

Another fun sketch from Beate! I decided to go very simple a plain today. I almost didn't add the brads, but at the last minute I decided the card needed a little something! :) I used the Upsy Daisy stamp set that I JUST got. . .can you believe that? I was probably the last person to get that set. I liked it as soon as I saw it, but it kept getting pushed onto my "next order" list, making room for sets I wanted more. I'm very happy I got it, though. I can see it will be a new favorite! :) Be sure and see what fabulous creations Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have posted today! Thanks for stopping by and have a WONDERFUL weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Upsy Daisy (SU); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- black detail embossing powder (SU), brads (Making Memories); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
