Finally Friday !!

Sorry we did not have a challenge last friday. I had a vacation in Jamacia.
Sadly I am back to the cooler temps yet happy I'm back to crafts.

Sketch challenge for this Friday Yayyy!
Here you sketch
here's My card

I used a brand new stamp set
Accented Blooms
Accented Blooms Clear-Mount Stamp Set146681

Create big messages with a few words and some beautiful imagery. 

Our clear-mount stamps 
* Are made of the same premium rubber as our wood-mount stamps.
* Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time. 
* Are precut so you don't have to trim.
* Are repositionable; temporarily mount them on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for storage.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately). 
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Quantity: 8 rubber stamps
Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, c, d, e

For the image I used watercolor paper, stamping write markers along with my aqua painter.
This is such a pretty set. I'm looking forward to playing with it some more.
Your turn

Finally Friday!
This Friday..Sometime's less is better.
Clean and Simple.
That means, no bling, no bows, and no badabing.
You can use layers for the background but keep the face of the card simple.
The Beauty of this kind of card, you can make a lot fast.

I used Stampin write makers and my aqua painter for this card on watercolor paper.
I love how it turned out.
I used one of my favorite retired stamp set Moon Lake. So if you buy sets and they retire, YES they are still good for a lifetime. Some people think because the stamp set is no longer for sale they need to get rid of it. Not true..

OK so now show me how easy it is to make a Clean and Simple card.
