Here's my card for today's Clean & Simple challenge. Today's challenge is a color challenge. The colors for the challenge are: pink, blue, green, chocolate (optional), and white or cream. I have to say this certainly was a challenge for me. I found that using four different colors was hard for me to keep it cas, but I guess that's why they are called challenges, right? LOL

My card was super easy to make. I just colored my stamp using my SU markers and then I stamped the image on my card stock.

I stamped it once along the bottom of my card stock and then I turned the paper around and I stamped it again. I had to use my stamp-a-ma-jig to be sure that I got my image lined up the way that I wanted it. I also added a few small dots to the center of the flowers using the fine time of my chocolate chip marker.

I used my scor-pal to create the decorative scoring you see above my stamped image. I decided not to add a sentiment at this time, because I thought I could add one later when I needed. This way I could make this a birthday card, thinking of you card, etc.

This flower stamp is from SU's Garden Silhouettes stamp set. This set is one of my favorite stamp sets, I find myself using this stamp quite often! My ribbon is from Offray.

Thanks so much for looking! I hope you all had a great weekend.

Very pretty! I dont think you even need a sentiment on the outside...Its pretty just like it is! I am guessing the challenge is using colors...Pastel or Pink and Blue...

Hi LaLatty! This is my first visit to your blog and I LOVE it! I love that you're using some retired SU stamp sets - I have HUNDREDS of retired SU sets and I do use them! Mine only go back to 2004, though, except for just a couple that I had to buy on the bay...

This card is just GORGEOUS! I wish SU carried the Scor-Pal so I could sell it to my customers!
