Today's card uses a layered look! It is the LNS Challenge this week! We were asked to use several layers on a card! So I did!!!

I think this came out pretty! Simple! 

Ok, so you're getting sick of Lucky Limeade! So am I! lol  But I have a ton of it-long story short-ordered several packs of the wrong color for some wedding invites I was making!  Now it's a beautiful color! But I'm ready for a change!  Since I have so much, however, I figured I'd use it for my convention swaps. This isn't a swap, but it was used the inspiration for one of my swaps! Hint! Hint!  You'll see those next week!

Anyway, so here are the deets!
Card base-Lucky Limeade. Mat-Tangerine Tango. Natural white was used for the front. 

I used the 2 1/2" circle punch to punch out 1 each of the circles.  

The stamp set is Mixed Bunch. I stamped one of the little flowers on the circles (although it's hard to tell here) using the same color ink. Just to give it some definition. I then stamped the big flower with VersaMark & heat embossed with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  

It was punched out with the Blossom punch.

Now one thing to consider-when heat embossing on the Natural cardstocks, the glue doesn't adhere as well, so the embossing is "rustic". I really like the look! Distressed-like me!!! lol

The sentiment is from Word Play. Talk about getting your $ out of a stamp set! This set gets used soooo much!!! So versatile & the images are so nice & bold & bright! 

Finish up with a "ribbon" punched out with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch & you're good to go!!! This is a fairly simple card! It looks nicer in person, but I'd like to receive it!

That's always how I choose my cards. Would this be something I'd like to receive? If I answer yes, then it's a go! If I answer no, it's back to the drawing board! Simple like that!

That's it for now!  Have a great weekend!

Happy Stampin'!
