Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge




Welcome to my blog and this month's theme is all about color.  The colors I chose are:

White, Black and Simply Chartreuse.

I think using neutrals with a pop of color like this is so much fun and I can see myself making a set of notecards changing out the button and embossed layer color. 

Hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping by!




Supplies used:
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, True Black and Simply Chartreuse
Stamp Set: Around & About Sentiments
Impression Plate: Sunshine
Ink: True Black
Button: Simply Chartreuse
Flower Die: Beautiful Blooms II #1
Ribbon: Michaels
Extras: Nestabilites Circle, DMC embroidery floss
