Artistic Outpost - Serenity

Today I am forgetting that we still have too much snow and that the weather hasn't been warm enough to wash my car and I am showing you this bright simple card created with the wonderful Serenity stamp set from Artistic Outpost.

I love to send cards with just a beautiful sentiment and this particular sentiment is one of my favorite.  The layout of this card was kept fairly simple so the sentiment  and scrolls were the main focus of the card.
The green panel behind the sentiment is a paint chip with the corners punched out with the MS flower border/corner punch.  The faux stitch holes are white gel pen.
I really like the orange base cs this is a quarter of a 4 panel 12X12 sheet I purchased at Michaels.
The upper right hand corner needed a little interest so a sponged circle of cs was layered under the main image layers. 
The brads were added to the circle for an added dimension.
The final touch was the orange paper flower with a brad center in the lower left corner.
Be sure to check out the wonderful vintage stamps at Artistic Outpost, I know you will be thrilled with the stamps and the reasonable price.

Not exactly sure what I am going to have for you tomorrow but you can be sure that it will be something.;  I have some DT work that I need to get caught up on. 

Tuesday is the first Sassy Cheryl's Challenge so be sure to come back and check it out. 

I am the hostess for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge blog this month and I think that I have created some fun challenges, I guess we will see.

Thanks for stopping by
