Stampin' Royalty Challenge #15

I just finished this card for the KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetie) Stampin' Royalty Challenge #15.

I was inspired by THIS card made by Nicole Heady.

My version has no colouring - I simply stamped the flower on red card stock and used a black gel pen to accent it.

The greeting is stamped right on the patterned paper and the ribbon is retired Stampin' Up!

I know I should be making bright coloured cards now that it's spring but I MADE this Kraft dotted paper (digitally) and I wanted to use it.

ETA: Angela left a comment on this post saying that she loved the SU! Write Stuff digital paper - assuming that's what I used. But I have to tell you that I created this KRAFT dotted paper the hard way with Photoshop not knowing that there was a More Mustard dot in that download. DUH! I really should print out those SU! download kits (using gallery shots) so that I don't have to reinvent the wheel again. Seriously I could have taken that More Mustard dot from Write Stuff and simply changed it to Kraft rather than making it myself!

Let this be a lesson to us all! Stay tuned for a post on keeping track of your digital paper!
