Just for fun!

Good Morning!  Happy Thursday.  This is normally my day for my Thursdays with Lindsay post, but since Lindsay's Stamp Stuff is sponsoring my Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge this week, I posted on Tuesday.  Click here if you'd like to see the card I made.

So I decided for today, I would make a card just for the fun of it.  No challenges, no DT requirements, just a fun card.


I kept it clean and simple.  This card went together very quickly and it's nice to have those ideas in your creative filing cabinet in your brain.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Old Olive, Summer Sunrise (PTI)
Stamps/Ink:  Pond Pals (Sweet n Sassy), Tuxedo Black (Memento), Old Olive
Copics:  Y15, YG03, YG63
Tools:  1 3/8", 1 1/4" circle punches, scallop punch (SU), Scor-Pal, Threading Water border punch
  (Fiskars)
Embellishments:  Brads (Basic Grey)

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope your Thursday is a blessed one.

This is so wonderful Mel! Just love that green froggie. Sometimes less really can be more and simple clean lines really does take front and center stage! This one is all of these and more. Thanks for the reminder! Hugs.
