Keepin' it Simple!

Simple is as simple does...not!! Hi friends! I am back to sharing a few creations in the next couple of days here. Every once in awhile I get tired of my same 'ol style and want to branch out...this time I tried a new card fold featured on the Papertrey Ink blog which worked well to showcase the focal botanical image.  Basically you just cut away the card front approximately an inch and that way you have a narrow flap to add a decorative border or strip. I wanted to try some fresh summer colors, so teamed up PTI's  Hawaiian shores ink with Enchanted Evening added just around the edges. The sentiment from Flourishes "Country Charm Labels" fit this set, so I inked it in the Enchanted Evening ink. As a side note, don't you think it would be fun to come up with all the names of inks? I would love to be on some Hawaiian shores with an enchanted evening, wouldn't you? The inside flap was stamped in a itty bitty flower stamp from the same "Country Charm Labels." The botanical are from Inkadinkado and were given to me by a friend, a "just because" gift, which is the best kind. Thank you, Joanne!! They are beautiful!
Thanks so much for stopping by! We are in a heat wave here in  Colorado...high 90's and I am feelin' it for sure! If my teeth weren't so sensitive to cold, I'd like to be sucking on a Popsicle right now! Maybe I'll just listen for the ice cream truck, instead...

  4. Love the Hawaiian Shores with Enchanted Evening - nice combo. Even thought you've done some very simple stamping on this card, I realy like the variations of light and dark ink on the image. Makes it realy come 'alive'. Once agin another beauty.
