A Simple Hello

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down one post or 
click HERE for my Creative Inspirations Paints post.  

I received a lovely message earlier this week from Denise (aka resqbarbie), the Splitcoast Clean and Simple Challenge Hostess.  The CAS team is spotlighting some past Guest Designers (early in my blogging days, I was a GD), and chose one of my cards for its sketch as this week's challenge.  I am so honored!  I've seen some marvelous takes on that sketch in the gallery.  One player's card won over at Moxie Fab World in the Card Design Handbook Focal Point challenge!

Of course, I HAD to play in this challenge.  ;)


I used two scraps from the big ol' scrap box, a bit of punching to dress them up, and a butterfly sticker.


The sentiment and lace are from Inspired By Stamping.

Thanks for dropping in, and enjoy your day!

Delightful Colleen, I particularly like the corner punch supporting the lace... like the end of a shelf, then the damask reminds me of wallpaper and what a beautiful butterfly sticker, I would probably have a hard time giving it up.
