Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #190





Woo-hoo!  This card was featured on this week's 
Stampers Showcase over at Stamping 411!!  
Thanks to all the operators who enjoyed my entry!

Okay, if you haven't ever gone over to Stamping 411 for their Saturday Sketch Challenges, you really need to -- they're so much fun!



This card is pretty simple and uncomplicated -- less embellished, perhaps? -- for me. I kept thinking that I needed to add something more, but I think that the play of the patterns off each other gives it an elegant look. I had never used the Elizabeth stamp before, but I think that I'm now in love with it!


(By the way, Lee Conrey's Magic Bow Maker is the greatest invention EVER!  Just saying.....)
