Why is it that the simpler I try to make things, the harder it is? It just boggles the mind. After chopping up a few pieces of perfectly good patterned paper, I groaned and said to my little sister, "GINA!!! I can't DO this!" She pretty much ignored me and went back to playing her guitar. lol

After a few swings and misses, I finally came up with something for the "Simply Put" challenge over at 365 Cards. For a twist, I went with an oval shape. The hardest
part of this card (I mean, after finally coming up with a design) was finding an ink color to stamp with. I have all the basic rainbow colors, but not much in the way of jewel tones. So I inked my stamp with black, stamped on a scrap of paper and then inked it again with red. There was enough black left on the stamp to make a dark reddish color... it actually matches pretty darn well ;-) I got to use my die cut machine again for my "embellishment."

As always, thanks so much for checking out my work ;-)
