Clean and Simple #142 , My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #43 and There She Goes #128

Happy Sunday stamping friends. Another week is about to begin and a busy one at that with Halloween. It will be a fun day at school, I know all my little ghosts and goblins will be looking forward to our day and our Halloween party in the afternoon!  Tonight I wanted to play along with the Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. I loved the idea of using the colours Red, Chocolate and Ivory! So I inked up my Stampendous stamp called Agapanthus Cluster and coloured it with my copic markers. 

I found the Wednesday Sketch Challenge over at My Favorite Things and decided to try to make it clean and simple with the colours Ivory, Chocolate and Red.  You'll notice that I tied a bow with my natural linen thread and that respresents the circle in the sketch. I tried to add a butterfly but it just didn't look right to me on the card!  I went for a natural look to this card with the thread and the feel so my card would qualify for the There She Goes Challenge to be Au Natural. 

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I am so happy you did! If you have a moment, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my card! This was a different style of card for me to make but I wanted to try something different. All this week I have been trying new styles, exploring the wonderful world of creativity!!  Oh how I love to craft!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Agapanthus Cluster Stampendous, AMUSE Sentiment
Inks: Copics, Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa
Papers: Natural Ivory (SU), Very Vanilla (SU), Basic Grey DSP
Extras: Linen Thread SU, Scallop Edge Border Punch (SU), Crimper
