On a simple Note...

A fast, clean and simple note card for whatever reason...  using scraps off the corner of my desk (where I shove all the left overs)!  The striped background is on CS that is smaller than an A2 size - but is perfect for a regular letter envelope.  The oval tag was stamped on a background made with Distress Ink refills dropped on a craft sheet.  Placing a scrap in the ink and moving it around a bit allows for some beautiful and colorful backgrounds.  "Just Saying Hello" is a separate stamp.  Finishing touches include Duo Glue & foil in the leaves of the flourish, a ribbon on the tag & distressing the edges of the card with some of the left over ink on the craft sheet.  Ever so frugal, eh?

IMAGES:  The  background is "Large Canvas Stripes" by Hero Arts; the oval "Journaling Tag" by Stampology; the sentiment is "Saying Hello" by Hero Arts.
PAPER:   CS is from my endless stash.
INKS: Ranger / Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint & Tumbled Glass.  Images are stamped with Versamark black ink.
