Clean and simple - Penny Black




The challenge at Penny Black and More for the month of June is Clean and simple. When I saw the theme for  my DT piece my heart sank. My crafting buddies make fabulous CAS cards but they are not my thing and I am just not good at making them. I did use a two lovely PB stamps.The floral stamp is called "star inspired" and the sentiment is from a set called "gratitude".  I made the embossed background using my scor-pal. I stamped my  image twice so I could use the centre of one image to build up the flower. I used a blue Promarker to colour parts of the flower to match my ribbon and pearls. There you have it.
Pop over to see the teams beautiful CAS cards and check out the rules for the new challenge. As usual there are several craft prizes up for grabs from our generous sponsors  Penny Black, Crimson Cloud, Stamp Addicts and All that scraps.

I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

I usually do not create a comment, but after looking at a bunch of remarks on "Clean and simple - Penny Black".
I do have some questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or do a few of the remarks look as if they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I'd like to follow everything new you have to
post. Could you make a list of all of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
