K for Keep it Simple

Good morning, today is the start of another ABC Christmas challenge. It is hard to believe but we are already almost halfway through the year. If you have not started on your Christmas cards, then this is the perfect time to start. Our theme this week is

K for Keep It Simple.

Our Lovely Sponsors this week are
Prize - a $10.00 Gift Certificate for Sweet Stamp Store
Prize is 2 stamps of winners choice.

I decided to play with a new Hero Arts stamp set that I had purchased on sale after the holiday was over. This is the first time that I have inked it up and I can tell that you will be seeing more of this before this coming holiday as I really like the results.

I started by stamping the leaves and berries and then I have stamped and embossed the flower before cutting it out and mounting it on pop dots. I have added a few pearls and a simple embossed sentiment and then matted it and added it to a card cut with a Spellbinders Grand Nestability die.

I hope you will join us with your own simple creations. Before you head off to start crafting be sure to visit the ABC Christmas Challenge blog for some more wonderful DT inspiration.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
