The Simplest Things

 Hello Friends!

I am back from my fishing trip and had a great time! 

A very Simple card today with more Impression Obsession new releases.  I just colored Chrysanthemum G12016 by artist Aislinn Adams with a pink and green water based marker and stamped it on white card stock. The  Simplest Things D13169 by artist Dina Kowal was embossed with Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black and Imagine Crafts Clear Embossing Powder.  The image was popped up over a pink Circle Shaker Frame DIE001-Z  Super easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!!

    Good to see you back to your blog. Hope you are well rested.

  4. Glad you had a great time Ellen! :) This creation is amazing my friend!! LOVE how you've added the sentiment over the focal image...I so suck at that! LOL!! Have a lovely weekend! HUGS

  5. Glad you had fun on your fishing trip. Your card is lovely. Love the embossed sentiment over the soft image.

  6. This is so pretty, I love pink and black together.

  7. The soft pink flower is such a perfect backdrop for the black sentiment! Beautiful background too!

  8. While you were gone I don't think a day went by that I wasn't wishing I was with you on that fishing trip! We haven't been in so long and I miss it terribly.
    Gorgeous card and love the design you used on here. Those colors are sensational!

  9. Hi Ellen, I hope you had a fantastic vacation. Your card is beautiful, the quote is wonderful and looks great over the pretty pink flower. Have a great long weekend, Shirleyx

  10. This is gorgeous Ellen, I love the way you have stamped the sentiment over the image, great design and such pretty colours.
    I'm so pleased you had a good time on your fishing trip.

  11. This is just lovely Ellen! what a wonderful quote from Bob Hope - stamped over the lovely bloom - love the off set framing and embossed background! A fishing trip sounds fun!

  12. This is so beautiful, love the colors and the great design.

  13. Wow! This is so elegant. I love how you stamped the sentiment over the image. It's not something I would think to do, but it works so beautifully here. I feel like combining the sentiment and the focal image really draws my eye to the center first - which I like :)

    Best crafty wishes!
