Simply Thinking of You

This week’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers is to use Chocolate (colored paper, of course), Ivory and Red.  I also found a fabulous sketch to follow over at Freshly Made Sketches (see sketch below card image), so I was all set to create a card!  Getting my mojo back is beginning to look hopeful, so starting out with this clean and simple card is a good thing!  Little by little…

Stamps – SU Circle Circus, Trendy Trees (sentiment)
Paper – SU Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Very Vanilla cardstocks
Ink – SU Chocolate Chip, Real Red
Accessories – SU scalloped circle & 1-inch circle punches, smaller circle punch, SU red gemstone brad

    That sketch challenge sounds wonderful! Lovely card. At first I thought it was red/grey which is very dynamic too…but the red/brown is great too!!

    Oh, Melissa – this is just delightful! I love how you used Circle Circus and the little tabs are a great balance to the red panel. Thanks for playing along with Freshly Made Sketches!
