As STRESS-FREE as it gets!

Well, you don't get any more stress-free than this card!  I decided to play along at a new challenge site (new to me, that is), The Friday Mashup!  The challenge this week was to create a card with Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Soft Suede and Tempting Turquoise OR create a thank you card OR mash it up and do both!  I decided to mash it up and ALSO combine that with a sketch over at clean & simple stamping.

Easton's 4th birthday is coming up and I am going to need lots of easy thank-you notes to mail out, so I  thought this would be perfect!  I love this color combination.  It really is not something I would put together on my own so this is another case of a challenge coming to my rescue!
See, didn't I tell you this was simple and stress-free?!  And aren't Button, Button and Circle Circus the perfect stamp sets for this layout?!  There are so many different combinations you could come up with with just those two stamp sets alone!  Change up the colors and sentiment and you could have a card for any occasion.  I just love the versatility of this design.  Plus, this one is so simple that I might even have the kids help me stamp these out!
Stamp Sets: Button, Button, Circle Circus, Kindness Matters
Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise
No tools or accessories!!!
