...Clean and Simple Yellow Flowers (TSG45)

Happy Monday, everyone! It's the start of a new week, and I'm here with a new challenge. Each Monday There She Goes will issue a different challenge, and a random participant will win a $5 gift certificate to the TSG Store. This week we were to create a card using yellow and flowers...so I used yellow flowers! LOL! I stamped the flowers and circles from the "Polka Dot Blooms" set in Crushed Curry Ink onto Kraft Cardstock, and added some stitching and distressing around the edges. I stamped the sentiment from "Act of Kindness" in Chocolate Craft Ink, then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. Simple embellishments like Copper Brads, Grosgrain Ribbon, an Apron Lace Border, and a Chocolate Button complete this clean and simple card.

Now let's see what the other Trendsetters have created to inspire us:

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge! Until then...

Supplies
Stamps: Polka Dot Blooms, Act of Kindness (There She Goes)
Papers: Crushed Curry, Kraft, Chocolate Chip
Inks: Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip Craft
Accessories: dimensionals, distressing tool, sponge dauber, sewing machine, mat pack, paper piercer, brads, clear embossing powder, apron lace border punch, ribbon, button, linen thread, mini glue dot
