Addicted to Stamps--Clean and Simple Challenge

I usually run and hide when I see this sort of challenge but there are always some wonderful samples at Addicted to Stamps. So inspired by the ones for the Clean and Simple Challenge I thought I would have a go. It seems a long time since I was even in my craftroom as my daughter and son-in-law have been here for 5 days and it has been fun and frollicks instead of crafting and computing.

I longed to add something down the right hand side and stick something onto the ribbon but resisted and have put it straight into an envelope so I won't be tempted.

The poppy stamp is a Hobby Art stamp-Poppies Set, and the sentiment is a Personal Impressions Stamp-Fluttering By

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some green card to back both the additions. A bit of green organza ribbon and that's it. 'Thinks!' Maybe a bit of gold down the side and few sprinkles here and there lol.-no better not.


  1. Gorgeous stamp and gorgeous card with gorgeous colouring. Love this and I love poppies, my favourite flowers. Just wish they didn't get battered with rain when I grow them.
    Good luck with this card.
    Hugs, Neet xx
