Simplicity is Beauty!


Hi there! Just popping in tonight with an autumn card I made for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  


When I saw Leigh's pretty sketch I knew I wanted to use my PTI sunflower. A few scraps of patterned paper provided the perfect anchor for it. I used PPP's Stitched Borders 3 for both horizontal cuts. I positioned the point of the bracket die to emphasis the word beauty! This sentiment is from PRS's New Day stamp set. Last but not least, I added two tiny butterflies as a nod to the one in the sketch.



I love the way this turned out and I hope you do too. Have a wonderful weekend!

That's one of my favorite sunflower stamps. It's perfect for fall and looks perfect on your card. :) Love the two horizontal layers together and the wee butterflies are so sweet!

Even mixing patterned papers can be simple, when done by a pro: YOU!
Gorgeous papers... love that little subtle woodgrain you've added to the mix, and your sweet little sunflower - oh! We love it when you play cards at CTS, Lisa! xx

Perfect sentiment for your lovely card, Lisa! Love the mix of papers and that wonderful sunflower! I should get mine out. It's hard to remember to use the sets I bought years ago--so many great stamps!

All the prettiness of fall in one card. Lovely, Lisa. So much movement with the shapes and butterflies. Placement of the bracket's point is amazing! I just love your cards!!!
