Life's Simple Pleasures

I had a pretty nasty computer virus for the past day and a bit so I am relieved to be back in the land of technology.  Luckily I had another computer to use but all my important files and e-mail accounts were off limits since Thursday night.  In my world of online school teacher, homeschooling mum, stamp designer, online forum frequenter, google reader, facebooker, and e-mailer I was VERY lost!

Now onto today's card. I was challenging myself with a little blast from the past and was delighted with the outcome.  I created a card using Shapes by Design.  You'll see I used a pretty colour pallette and stamped coordinating coloured images.  I just love the versatility of Shapes by Design and I use it time and time again to create cards for my family members especially the guys.  There is something masculine about a bunch of stamped shapes :) As you'll note, I added a splash of pink to this card.  Couldn't resist!


















Supplies:

Stamps: images and sentiment from Shapes by Design by PTI
Ink: Snow Cap by PTI, Raspberry Fizz by PTI, Pure Avocado by PTI, Terra Cotta Tile by PTI, Orange Zest by PTI, Scarlet Jewel by PTI
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White by PTI, Raspberry Fizz by PTI, Pure Avocado by PTI, Terra Cotta Tile by PTI, Orange Zest by PTI, Scarlet Jewel by PTI
Other: Paper from a book
Accents: Ribbon by PTI, Terra Cotta Button by PTI
Tools: Crop-a-dile corner cutter, scissors


Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a fab weekend.

Alli, I love this card and those colors go great together! Yes, Shapes by Design is definitely on my "to get" list along with so many others. :) As you say, it's versatile and not too "frilly" for guy cards. Great choice for the flower on your card as well!
