FWF & roll with the punches

Today's Stamp Simply Challenge is all about PUNCHES...
Head on over to Sharon's blog to read all the details and see her amazing sample!

I went with an almost OLC, and used NO ribbon WHATSOEVER!

I used my Donna Downey set from Unity- Insightful Meadow. The sentiment is from A Noteworthy Occasion.

I punched the edge, and added a strip of Material girl on the inside and 2 brown pearls on each side of the sentiment. I was going to add some ribbon- but I decided against it, thought it would take away from the simplistic design. Shocking, right?!

Holy Guacamole, I love this elegantly simply card! Every detail is fab: the color combo, the over-stamping, the punched border, the stamps, and the bit of DP behind the border.

Ummm, can you tell that I just love this!?!
