Resilience, Loyalty, Determination and Spirit



Greetings! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I am here to share with you the newest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme for this time is Clean and Simple (CAS).  Now I don't know about you, but CAS does not come easy for me.  This is all quite amusing in that when I first starting making cards, CAS was my card style! I marval, now, at the sheer beauty of those who create CAS with finesse.  Anyhow, above is my inspiration piece for the FSC challenge.  I have been anxious to ink up this British Bull Dog and pennant by Crafty Individuals for some time.  I decided to add some splats of color on either side using another CI stamp I received as a complimentary gift when ordering. The overall card is 8" x 8" so I decided to mat the focal point with a red panel.  A crown brad in my stash completes my card.  I hope you will pop on over to FSC to see all the wonderful inspiration pieces my design team sisters have created for you and then I hope you will give this challenge a go, too!

Hi Yvonne...The words are perfect in this card! I can picture all of them when I look at it. I think the splats look great and finish it all off beautifully. A nice touch!!!

Lovely that you have made a return to a style you first started out with.
Isn't that little splatter stamp so useful?
Lovely.
