Very, very simple

The sun is shining and it's a beautiful spring day in the Pacific Northwest. The day after a holiday weekend means lots of errands. And I'm still wanting a leisure holiday pace. What to do? Make a very simple card.

I had 3 squares of handmade paper intended for another unknown use. I had a new die from JustRite. With a panel of white linen card stock, I used the new die which cut 3 stitched square openings. I stamped the brushstroke with Electric Pink ink and took the heat gun to it for faster drying. With my MISTI, I stamped the sentiment; using the MISTI allowed me to re-stamp extra times because the texture of the linen card stock can be tricky, That panel was adhered to the A2 base card.
