You Matter

Good morning! Welcome to a new week. I am ready for some delightful fall days and I've begun by enjoying the sunshine as I type here on my porch. Not cool weather yet, but it is coming! 



My card today is clean and simple and inspired by two challenges. I began by stamping the background stamp called You Matter (SSS) onto white card stock and adhering it to a white card base. 



The leaves are loosely (WPlus9 Autumn Leaves) painted with Zig Markers and spattered with a bit of black, also added to the background. I love that thanks to the text stamp this card can be for encouragement or a birthday and is gender neutral.

I assembled it thanks to the great prompt and lovely samples at Freshly Made Sketches



and Time Out Challenges


I am happily going to get on with my day now. Some cooking prep and a pile of laundry await. Hope your day is wonderful!

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!

What a great collection of stamps and dies you used on this card! Yes, it's clean and simple, but with all the interest of a much more elaborate card. This is just perfect, Cindy!
