okay, maybe not THIS particular card, but i was going for simple again - stocking up on cards to bring on Wednesday night in hopes of making some money! i'd like to make enough to pay my registration fee for another craft fair in December, so fingers and toes are crossed they like my wares! ;)

anywho... new DOLLIES Color Challenge today! a combo with which i'd hoped i'd make something much more exciting. as it is, i was happy to have used up this old VELLUM sentiment - vellum is another of those things i simply cannot bring myself to enjoy (much like rubons)... in this case, i have not befriended the vellum, though rubons and i are getting quite chummy these days. :D

so, the combo:

my card:

also inspired by
Cupcake Crafts - blue and green

seriously, just wanted to do something slightly different, stamped with white ink on the mint cardstock, cut my scallops freehand, anchored the vellum with brads, added a couple of flowers, and VOILA! i do, however, really like the font used for the sentiment. too bad it's not a STAMP or a RUBON!

anywho... if you play along with this particular Dollies challenge, you can win THIS:

from our FABBY August sponsor, Dolce Scrapbook!
