Clean And Simple Challenge at Stamping Vacation

Happy Wednesday!
It is Clean And Simple time over at the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog! So, today I have a Design Team card for you. I used stamps from our January sponsor, Stamps Of Life. Make a CAS card and link it up for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate! We have a Recipe Theme this month:

Use a Border, Oval Panel, 1 Sentiment, and 2 Pearls

Very fun Recipe!! Here is what I came up with for the challenge.

Stamps: Flowers 2 Share Set #15 from Stamps Of Life.

CS: Bermuda Bay and Barely Banana from Stampin' Up.

DP: Stampin' Up

I stamped the images with black pigment ink and embossed with clear powder. I hand cut the oval and layered in some DP. My border per the requirements of the recipe is a floral stamped border. Accents are 2 pearls and a bow. And here is a detail photo.

I also decorated the inside.

As I was downloading the photos of this card, I thought that the flowers on the inside would look nice colored in too. So, I grabbed a Bermuda Bay Marker and colored them in. Of course than I had t0 take another photo so you could see. Which do you like better?

Bermuda Bay is really more of a teal color, but I just could not get the camera to pick up the blues. Can't wait for summer and I can get my photos in the sunlight!!
A few Fun challenges:

That's about it for me today. I have to head over to the hospital. My Husband is still not well enough to come home. He had a blood transfusion on Monday. He still cannot eat much and is still on IV feeding. I hope and pray he will be home this week. Pretty lonely here without him! Love ya,
