And here is my card!


So I went the traditional card route today, but come back tomorrow and Friday, I have more 3D stuff up my sleeve!


This card was super fun and super easy to make. I started with some texrtured vanilla card stock from MFP and stamped that adorable image of the girl and the horse. I then cutout some prtt paers usng my big shot and dies ad lined them all p. Now I must tell you, I ran out to dimentionals, I know shame on me, shocker of all shockers, BUT I do have a TON of coasters, the super thick ones, so I used that behind my pretty paper to raise up what I needed! Clever, clever! Anywho, I then took the left over piece of coaster and cut it into a little flag shape and stamped the words in the mtching ink. You know this is a simple card, but I do love it. Sometimes simple is easiest! Now hop along! enjoy the rest of the ride!




Happy Stampin!
