Flower Pot

Hi is a dull and cool day here today so there was no guilt as I spent most of the day making cards. :)

I found a new challenge blog A Blog Named Hero and since I have a few Hero Arts stamps, I thought I'd join in with their current challenge-cards with a view.  The flower pot stamp is vintage Hero Arts...way back from 2002!  I've used it here and there over the years and still find it cute.

I'm also joining in with the' how charming' challenge on the Less is More blog and the 'use your stash' challenge on The Kraft Journal.

I stamped the flower pot with VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  The front panel was dry embossed with Ornate Swirls from Sizzix and, circle window cut out and then I rubbed it with white ink.  Love the look of white on kraft cardstock.  The charm is from my stash, ribbon is from Offray and the sentiment strip is stickers from SRM.

Thanks for stopping by today.

very pretty - I love white on kraft also - I have new toys but tired - so just assembled 3 cards that were already cut out. Tomorrow - card making.

Love the simplicity of this card! I just bought some charms on clearance having no idea on how I would use them. I love how you did that! Congrats on making the Top #3 at The Kraft Journal.
