How To Simplify Your Stamping

Want to make your life easier?  To simplify things?  One way is to look for challenges.  Two great ones are ColourQ and Freshly Made Sketches.

Here's a card I did for these:
Using the Birthday Basics Suite from Stampin' Up! Annual catalog, the Cycle Celebration ( #130273 - clear; #130270 - wood) stamp set and the Remembering Your Birthday (#131350 - clear; #131347 - wood) fit into the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches perfectly! 

     The color scheme of Island Indigo, pacific Point, Early Espresso, Whisper White, and Pear Pizzazz (because I don't have any Lucky Limeade) was very different and a fabulous challenge for me!  
     It's fun to work on things that made you stretch and grow as a papercrafter.

Here are the challenges - 
Hope you find a challenge you can meet today and that you are able to simplify your stamping.  

Please be sure to check out the other great cards from people who participated.  It's a lot of fun!!
