Clean and Simple Anniversary

I love adding stamped elements to cards and layouts because the stamping is a step that can be done ahead of time. I don't even have to have a specific project in mind, because all of that comes later. If I'm not feeling terribly creative, but still want to do something crafty, I stamp up a bunch of images and make some embellishments for my "odds and ends" drawer.

This flower is one of those embellishments. I made it (along with several others) with a Martha Stewart flower stamp set. The set came with flower outlines and the stamp of the flower itself so there is no coloring necessary. I stamped the flower with light pink and the outline in darker pink and then cut it out. I added a blob of Fabri-Tac to the center and added some pale pink pearl beads.

The rest of the card is super simple. I used a pale cream shimmer cardstock (120 lb), Martha Stewart punch (Punch Around the Page Double Arches) and accented it with American Crafts Glitter cardstock. The rub-on is by Melissa Frances. Thanks for taking a peek!
