Well, it's been a while since I sat down to write a post… have to admit, it feels good. There's been so much going on over at Stampin' Up!, I have to give myself some time to catch up, but for now I'll talk about today's card.

I created this one a few weeks ago for a Pals Color Challenge and never posted it. My first reaction to the colors, (Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Basic Gray), wasn't very enthusiastic until I put them together. Blushing Bride and Basic Gray are a perfect pair and the Rose Red just pops against the softness of Blushing Bride.

The flower is from one of my favorite stamp sets, "Simply Sketched", a Hostess Set from the 2013-2014 Catalog. 

Since my card design was so simple, I added some dimension by fussy cutting the flower and using a few Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The "Happy" sentiment stamp is from "Happy Watercolor" in the new Occasions Catalog along with the background stamp (which I stamped off once with Rose Red ink).  In no time at all, I had a "Simply Sketched" flower and a Simply Pretty card to send to someone special.

So, pull out some stamps and ink and create something wonderful… add a little fussy cutting just for fun.
