Clean and Simple Tulips

I have another entry for the Hero Arts Clean and Simple Stamping contest! Yes, I said last week I was going to INUNDATE them with entries... and this is my second. The month's not even half over, though, so I'm not giving up yet. :D 


I love this newspaper tulips stamp. I chose to use it very simply for this card, and not just because of the contest! I wanted to let the image take centre stage. Red for contrast, and call it done! Makes a perfect any-occasion card.
I'm back tomorrow with the new Crafty Creations Challenge! It's a good one... ;)


Supplies: white & Stampin' Up real red cardstock, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party patterned paper, Hero Arts newspaper tulips stamp, Colorbox frost white ink, white embossing powder, Twinery maraschino twine, Creative Memories corner-rounder punch, pop-dot tape 
Pin It Now!
