Just because / ESS Sketch #36

It has been over a week since I have gotten a chance to post - a lot of stuff getting in the way of playing/crafting!

But I did want to participate in this week ESS Sketch #36 were Tracy Clemente gave us a simple but FUN sketch to play with.

Here is my take on this sketch:

The way this last week has been going, simple was very welcome, so I put a quick card together using the first stamp set I pulled out - sometimes that is just the way to go! :) no fuss, just the luck of the draw :).... and it got me to ink this Hero Arts Woodland Creature set for the very first time!

I wanted something bright, cheery and simple - and I think this card is just that. I am really loving this DCWV Green Stack pattern paper with the mushrooms - I pulled some colors from this PP to use on the image. Doing a bit of paper piercing was a much needed stress reliever :)

This was a quick card to make and I had fun taking a break from this crazy week to make it :)

Mushrooms - Hero Arts
Woodland Creatures
Tiny lady bug - Hero Arts Woodland Creatures
"There is no one line YOU!" - Hero Arts Woodland Creatures
DCWV The Green Stack, DCWV Texture Paper
Marvy Uchida scallop rectangle punch
