Simply Sketched Birthday Card

Simply Sketched, Hardwood

I have a question for you: if you could get Stampin’ Up! to never retire one stamp set (i.e. Lovely as a Tree), which one would it be? Which set do you think would never get old, never get boring, always be “timeless.” My answer without a doubt is Simply Sketched. I love this sketched bird and the sketched flower is stunning! Granted, this was not the card I started out with this afternoon, but I definitely love the results that I finally got. Now, I have to figure out how my craft room could have exploded just from this card! This card started out with Life in the Forest stamp set – first with the little mouse, then with the little rabbit. It just wasn’t working so I scrapped most of it (the vines and flowers are glued down so they stayed put) and went to my favorite stamp set and it did not disappoint.  I love the new Hardwood background stamp! Doesn’t it look really great with Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla? I will be doing this combination again. I wanted a punch of color but I may have overdone it just a tad! haha I love the Dahlias and just wish they would make them in all of the colors. Those little mushrooms are darling and add that little touch of whimsy.
