For this simple card, I stamped the background image in Saffron twice, using a mask on the top left one before stamping the bottom right one. The hearts are in Ruby and the sentiment in Black. I stamped the flower in Black on a separate piece of paper, colored with markers, then cut it out right along the edge with Micro-tip Scissors. This could easily have been a one-layer card if I'd stamped the flower first, masked it off, then stamped the background. I just don't like having the coloring bleed through to the back side of my card.

I love the clean and simple look of this "all-occasion" card. If you want a couple more ideas using this stamp set, click here and here. The second card, "Bad Influence," ranks as one of my top ten cards of the year...maybe of all the ones I've ever made.
Now I really need to buckle down and get some writing done. I had a couple of good days followed by a couple of not so good days. Gotta get my word count up!
Until next time,
