GLADIOLA ~ CLEAN & SIMPLE

I made this card for today's Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. It was an inspiration challenge today. I was inspired by this piece of artwork HERE.

I used NEW stamps for July from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS. This one is called AUGUST FLOWER OF THE MONTH ~ GLADIOLA.
I went with a white on white colour scheme and added a bit of the new In Colour textured cardstock Razzleberry. I used my new Bow Easy to create my little bow, and added some score lines and distressing of edges.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps ~ August Flower of the Month Gladiola
Paper: Whisper White, Textured Razzleberry
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Black Staz-on
Accessories: In Colour Markers, Blender Pen, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, bone folder, ribbon
Thanks for looking. Have a great evening.
Gloria

This is so lovely. I love all the white, the distressed white edge, and the butterflies. Love the script behind the image too. Your new puppy is adorable! I tried to leave a comment about him last week, but it wouldn't work for some reason. I adore little dogs, but my husband only likes big dogs, so we've never had any.

This is so pretty, Gloria! I don't usually use purples, but maybe I should consider it! I've tried a couple of times to leave comments, but keep getting "operation aborted" messages - we'll see if this one makes it...
