Clean & Simple... FTL #51 Challenge!

Happy Sunday morning everyone! Hope your weekend is going well and enjoying the August summer weather... :)

Last night I decided to check out the Clean & Simple blog and came across the Fall-To Layout #51 and you know how I LOVE the SU! Top Note Die... so I decided to give it a try!

I used my larger scaled DP in my stash. Plus the fun bright colors I just enjoy so much. The flower is a sweet touch... using my small oval punch to make my leaves!!

Find some stamping time today and "thanks SO much" for the visit. It's always a treat when you do... ENJOY!!

SMILES... Michelle :)

(Stamps: SU! Birthday Greetings Paper: SU! Kraft, Basic Black, Old Olive, DP (Luxe Designs) and DSP SU! Walk in the Park) Ink: VersaMark Other: SU! Black Detail EP, SU! Top Note Die, SU! Small Oval Punch, Foam Tape, Glue Dots, American Crafts Vinyl Letters, Flowers (Making Memories), rhinestone (Michael's), etc.

Another BEAUTY of a card Michelle! You always choose your patterned papers so well. I love the way you have done larger than life initial letters and that background paper is so fresh. I'm still insanely jealous of that lovely top note cutter though!! I must check out that blog, I always admire their layouts but never quite make it over there x

What a beauty you have here, Michelle! I LOVE those colors together... and that bold flowery swirly paper. Yummo!!! Those letters are amazing... the black really makes the card pop!

I think I'll take your advice and head to my craft room. I don't know where this weekend has gone, but it's gone too fast. I need to get some things ready for posting.

Hugs and smiles across the miles Michelle!

Oh my Michelle! This is drop dead gorgeous!!!! I love both the DPs you used, that beautiful flower and the way you adapted that top note die. Simply yummy!

We had some pretty intense storms last night and tons of rain. Guess some parts of the state are experiencing flooding, not to mention the humidity and heat. Hope you didn't get hit too hard up there with the nasty stuff.
