Some simple cards

This is about as clean and simple as I get. I used two colors, a coral which may be looking orange to you, and white. I took the picture out on the lanai here in Florida to try to get the color as true as possible. There isn't much green here right now, due to the heavy frosts that Florida suffered in the past weeks. Even the grass is brown. But it is warm, close to 70 degrees today, and sunny! That's all I need.......

Supplies: K5298 Blooming Heart, CG118 Stripes Pattern, AR109 Heartfelt Wishes, CH170Pale Pink Accent Pearls, Worn Lipstick Distress ink, white and coral cardstocks

This one uses Worn Lipstick and the Stripes cling stamp again, only I added Shabby Shutters and stamped it a second time to make a pink and green plaid for the background. Then I added 3 of the small Blossoms cling flowers and a sentiment to it.

Supplies: CG118 Stripes Pattern, CG148 Blossoms, CL371 Essential Messages, BoBunny Flamingo double dot, coral, green cardstocks, VersaFine Onyx Black, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters Distress inks
