Simple Saturday #21

I'm trying to make up for my last 2 weeks of non-existence. But I have to admit. I am not suffering! I just love being in my stamp room. Just wish I had more time in a day. So, welcome to Simple Saturday. I struggled to keep this card simple today so let's just say the idea I want to share with you is simple! Got it?? It only took me about 3 or 4 minutes to do the part that I wanted to share with you. So here it is...
If you know me, you know I LOVE embossing folders. They have to be one of my absolute fave products to use. So today I used my Fifth Avenue Floral EF and then I pulled out that oh-so sharp craft knife and cut out a few of the petals. Watch your fingers with that knife. It is so crazy sharp it takes no effort at all to cut out those petals. Next I slipped in some bits of dsp behind the holes I created. Another great reason to love this technique. You get to use up all those little itty-bitty bits of leftover dsp. I glued them in place and trimmed off the excess from the edges. To finish it off I sponged a little bit of colour over the image to bring it out a bit more.
So here is the card. Like I said, I had a hard time keeping it simple. I used Stampin' 411 Sketch #221. It worked perfectly for my card.
Thanks for stopping by. I sure hope you'll be seeing more of me now that the kids and I are settling into our schedules. Have a great day!
