Mail Me Monday

I have a really easy card to share with you today for Mail Me Monday. This one is just two layers and has NO embellishments so it's SUPER easy to make AND mail!  I used these beautiful colors at colourQ:
I love these bright colors!  I thought they would be great for a pick-me-up for a friend.  I had my stencils from my Build a Banner Simply Created kit out on my table and thought they would make a cute card too!

I was originally just going to do the stenciling but I thought it looked a bit clean, so I just had to add some Gorgeous Grunge on there! :) I ALMOST made the mistake of using my Black StazOn ink pad since my new black ink pad does not ink up AT ALL, but fortunately I realized that would stain my stencil. Talk about a close call!  I still have all of my old-style ink pads, and that one worked perfectly.  

Stamp Set: Gorgeous Grunge
Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Strawberry Slush, Basic Black
Accessories: Build a Banner Simply Created kit
