This is my take on Laura's sketch #11, I have to say I am so glad I started doing these sketches- they are A-mazing!!!

Simple card for Saturday

Here's a quickie -with a theme.

I threw this together a while back. I had lost my mojo and kinda just stood in my craft room. I spied this page of Bazzill Chip Toppers that I have never used...and a papertrey set that has never seen ink either....GASP! The theme is use what you have never used before . This card came together quickly- I thought I would just use a sentiment-kind of an all occasion type card.

cardstock is bazzill, stamp is papertrey-Wise Owl, Ink Palette, cuttlebug swiss dots folder
