Crafty Angels - "Keep it Simple" & something different ;)

Our challenge over on Crafty Angels this week has been set by Caz and is themed 'Keeping it Simple. You can only use 1 piece of card, 1 patterned paper, 1 type of embellishment, 1 image and 1 sentiment....
although you don't have to use all of the above.

I have been wanting to try a Spring Card for ages now and finally took the plunge. Quite easy to make and I really like how it turned out.

 Don't you just adore this cute Bildmalarna stamp??!! She is called Tossa Flower and she was in my DT kit from Crafty Angels. I coloured her using TH distress inks and copic markers. As we could only use one type of embellie I went with flowers (no big surprise there, eh?! lol) My sentiment is a Studio G.

I don't normally post my scrapbook layouts here as i have a (very neglected *blush*) scrappy blog but I wanted to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is themed Shabby Chic.

My papers have been ripped, torn, distressed, stapled and generally abused by all things Tim Holtz, lol. And when I finished on the papers the flowers and journalling tag were next for an inking!! Love, love, love the lace I've used but that was the very last piece. I bought it in my local drapery store and they are sold out of it... *big tears*. My title is  made from chipboard Thickers. To finish off I just added some buttons, ribbon, pearls and pins.

Another one done for the scrapbook, only about 5000 more pictures to go!! ;)
Have  a fantabulous Tuesday and happy crafting!!
