Clean and Simple Sketch 145

I really like the sketch at Clean and Simple this week, so I decided to give it a try. I used a set of papers I picked up at Michaels a year or so ago that has just been waiting for a layout like this. I also used Floral Frenzy, which was the first PTI set I purchased.

I'm not sure how clean and simple these are, but I really like them. It's a great layout, and I have several more already made with the blocks of color but without the final layer, so they're ready to stamp when an occasion arises. There is also a beautiful blue in this set of papers, which looks so pretty with the other colors.

Paper: PTI vintage cream, Recollections Batiked My Interest
Stamps: PTI Floral Frenzy, Tag-Its #3
Ink: Memento pearlescent rust, cantaloupe, Brilliance rich cocoa, pearlescent ivy

That delicate leaf print DP is a great choice Ann - it works beautifully in blocks like this and I love the colours.
