A simple card to share today using some stamps that I recently purchased.  The kids were outside playing wiffle ball with their daddy and gave me a chance to think about "cleaning" only I got distracted, lol!  For this card I used several Penny Black stamps including: Petal Party for the sentiment/flower, Floral Thread (illustrated by sweet Laura Kirste Campbell) and Puzzle Parts.  I stamped the flower using Versafine black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged distress ink and trimmed layering one flower on top of the other for dimension.  The Floral Thread background was stamped on a scrap piece of Ocean Mist card stock and then die cut, adding a bit more sponging. 

The colors for this card were inspired by the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
