Simple Stamping


Simple stamping is so satisfying, quick and easy.  This card is that kind of card.
I wanted to play along with the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge this month; the theme is Fabulous Flowers.  


I am addicted to the Embossing Folder inking and this was a second time pressing onto the embossing folder.  Why waste good ink if it is there?  It made for the perfect, subtle background for my flowers.  I stamped the Unity flowers then added the sentiment from Mama Elephant.  
Lastly, added the pearls and the twine.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES, FLOWERS


Simon Says- SPRING FLOWERS


Keep It Simple- WATERCOLOUR



Have a good week.  Looks like we are in for a lot of rain.

Supplies:  stamps- Mama Elephant, Unity/ Memento bl/ eb folder/ Distress ink/ pearls/ twine

So very lovely! I am a simple stamper myself, so this is just the kind of stamping that I do and love! After seeing your many gorgeous embossing folder inking, I must give it a try!
