Clean and Simple #8

So how did you enjoy that blog hop?! I thought it was a fun one and how cool at a chance to win some goodies at the end!

So I am on a roll with playing in these Clean and Simple challenges and the latest one was a sketch challenge. You KNOW I'm all about sketch challenges like white's on rice! lol You can view info about the challenge here. If you haven't had a chance, you should try and participate once. I find these types of cards sooo easy to do. Minimal embellishments, lots of white space...done in less than 30 minutes...WHAAAAT???! Need I say more? :) Here's my card for it.

I used the new stamp set coming out in the Occasions mini (in just a couple of days!!) called Oval All. I stamped the image twice. Once to color and punch out with the large oval punch and twice to color the large pink flower, cut out and pop up. You might be wondering what the small Kiwi oval layer is from. Well, since there isn't an oval punch that layers nicely beyond the large punch, I merely cut one out myself. Feel free to free-hand your own fine border if you don't have one. You can't really see my little jagged edges, so it's all good! :) I then punched out the riding hood red piece with the new Scalloped Oval punch. The border sticker is from the Simply Scrappin' kit called Sweet Nothings....GORGEOUS kit this is!
