Happy Happy Birthday Rose and Flourish...Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #209~CAS, STAMPlorations August Theme Challenge~Stamps and Markers/Pencils, and Anything Goes Challenge


Back to work for me today (August 31st)! Gahhhhhhhhh! Okay, now that I have that out of my system, a hearty welcome Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #209~Clean and Simple

My card today showcases a variety of STAMPlorations products: Flourishes All Over, stenciled in  light blue, a sentiment from Party Time, and, a rose (from a set that I can't find in the shop), coloured with Chameleon pens, fussy cut, and set atop an inlaid die-cut stitched circle. 

(apologies for the very *soft* photo...overcast day....)

Turning the stage over to you!

What Clean and Simple creativity will you share in the gallery? Excited to see...
