A basket of flowers for you - Stamp Simply #131

It's time for another Stamp Simply Challenge! This week, Sharon is challenging us to make a CAS card with texture. Here's what she says:

Friday, March 19 - ssnotime131 - CAS Texture -- Adding texture to cards is fun. Today lets try to add texture, but still keep it clean and simple. Those 2 challenges may seem to be incongruous, but let's try! I think we'll get some pretty results!!! Your texture can come in any
form -- embossing, distressing, adding embellishments for dimension -- whatever you like -- just add some fun texture to a CAS creation!!!

OK, my card is definitely simple and I think it's pretty clean. And it has texture. First, I dry embossed a card base of Always Artichoke and added Basket Full 'o Flopsey that I stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel, colored with Copic markers, and cut out. Lastly, I tied a green gingham ribbon around the top and added the sentiment. And voila! It was done! Didn't I tell you it was simple, LOL?!

So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime131 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
