Simple but effective~I hope!

Hello! Hope your weekend is going nicely!
I know your probably came to see what I've colored, but sometimes a girl just has to make a few simple cards to have on hand or so she's not late with birthday wishes! Here are two I've made recently. This one uses an SU background plaid stamp that I have always loved. The flower is a Spellbinders nestability. The embossed background is a Sizzix folder (sorry, I don't know the name) More details below!

I cased Dawn McVey, one of Papertrey Inks designers. The flower center is a freebie (with 11 other circle images) for their recent anniversary celebration. It took some looking to find it so I want to link it up HERE for you if you are interested. Scroll down the post until you see Free download.
I used a white card base, some PTI Hawaiin Shores and SU dotted paper from the Regals collection. The script stamp for the blue is an old one from SU. Wonderful ribbon from S"U finished off the flower.
Thanks for coming by today-I hope you aren't too disappointed-I really love all kinds of 'stamping' and papercrafting. Hope you do too!
Hugs, Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, I hear you about having a few simple cards on hand - birthdays can sneak up so fast. I love your card, the colours are crisp, clean & oh so pretty together. Hope you are enjoying your weekend - here in Southwestern Ontario we are gearing up for another winter storm. Nancy
