Simon Says challenge.

Ah, Tuesday... the day I get to relax and do nothing. I normally have bible study in the morning, actually, but today I didn't end up going, as I needed a 'sick day'. It's also the day I get my home support, so by the time that's all done, I really don't like to go anywhere in the late afternoon or evening if I can help it.

I got a lot of cards photographed yesterday... ones I'll keep in my 'back pocket,' as it were, in case I'm not feeling creative and want to make sure I do a blog post. I'm hoping I'll be creating regularly though, as I've been working on organizing my Pinterest boards and I have a LOT on inspiration at my fingertips.

Today, a quick card for a few challenges:

I tweaked this card from one at the stamp store. I didn't want a sympathy card - we have a need for masculine birthday cards at church. I also changed the spacing of the image/sentiment, and did my shadowing differently. In keeping with the 'favourite style' challenge at Sweet Stampin, I choose to keep my card very clean and simple. It has all my favourite elements... a clean design, a bit of distressing, and a bit of texture to add visual interest.

I'm entering it in the following:

Simon Says Stamps: Simon Says... Emboss It! 
Sweet Stamping -  Your Favourite Style

I don't have the card details on me right now... the cardstock is all Bazzil; I don't remember what stamp companies the images are from, as I borrowed them.
