Gratitude...

Here's a simple and fun card using NO patterned papers for the DCRU challenge this week! :) I made my own paper with this cool set from Skipping Stones Design using the recently released Dandelion Dreams.



I stamped two of the smaller leafy stamps using both Pale Plum and Perfect Plum ink onto Pale Plum cardstock. Doesn't it remind you of lilacs? I thought this large silhouette stamp would look really cool with a shadow behind it, so I stamped the Pale Plum first, and then roughly lined up the image and stamped over it in Perfect Plum. Can you tell I'm in Spring Mode? Or at least wishing for Spring?! ;) The sentiment "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life" comes from the set Healing Wings.



Supplies
CS: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum
Stamps: Dandelion Dreams and Healing Wings by Skipping Stones Design
Misc: SU border punch, Ticket corner punch, Certainly Celery Twill ribbon

Kandi your card is gorgeous. Love the stamps you used...they make a very pretty background. Who needs DP when you can make cards that look this good? Wonderful job! Thanks for playing along with the DCRU NO DP Challenge.
