I Miss You, FMS127 & CC5

Hi there, Friends! Just a quickie post and a quickie card today. I wasn't even planning on posting today, but there are always so many challenges I want to play along with and I had to squeeze a couple more in. I was also waiting for some inspiration to make a simple and masculine card for one of my family members who just moved out of state. Like my Mom always used to say, you have to strike when the inspiration hits you! 

My inspiration today came from two challenges. The Card Concept has a color challenge this week, and they like you to name your style, which I think I will call Clean and Layered. Is it still clean if I don't have lots of white space? I have lots of brown space. I hope that will do. The layout by Jen at Freshly Made Sketches this week is awesome! Oh my gosh, I can think of a million ways to use it, and I know I will again.

This is a super simple card so no big explanation required. The DSP and Lucky Limeade Card Stock are retired, but all the other supplies are current Stampin' Up products. The sentiment stamp was colored with markers.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Really Good Greetings
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso Core'dinations
Designer Series Paper: Candlelight Christmas
Markers: Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso
Tools: Big Shot, Banners Framelits
Accessories: Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Neutrals Candy Dots

See you again soon!
