TST #152

Don't know about the rest of you folks but "are you tired of snow yet!".  Over the past couple of days while I was making this card we managed to obtain at least 18 inches and as I type out this blog post it is snowing yet again.  Maybe that is why I decided to take todays Try Stampin on Tuesday and make it a Clean and Simple card with a punch of colour.

Our twist today with the sketch is to make it "Well Worn", however, I missed that part when I was putting my card together, but if you consider all the shovelling that I have done lately I would say that would be my "Well Worn" portion!

I had a couple of attempts at this card.  First I thought I would use the new Pantone colour for 2014 a shade of purple, but then couldn't get the effect that I wanted for the card so then I decided to venture through my various stamps and found "Meadow" which I purchased last year and loved the look of it when I bought it be haven't used it.  I really do need to go through my stamps and have a garage sale of the ones I don't use.
My punch of colour comes with the sun.  I punched out a circle on a Post-it note and sponged the sun.  I had originally planed on only having this as a white card but then when I was stamping the sentiment I slipped and the image doubled itself so round two I trimmed out the original card and mounted it on the yellow CS.

Clean and Simple, quick and easy - unless you slip!

Hope you like what I have come up with, now it's your turn.  Need more inspiration, hop on over to the TST site and see what the other Great Designers have in store for you.
