PPA291 & Freshly Made Sketches 227

So what do you do when you have a packed week and sick kids get thrown in the mix?  You make a quick, simple card.  It may be minimalist, but it still gets the point across and sometimes those are my favorite.

For today’s card, I was inspired by the color challenge this week over at Pals Paper Arts and the layout challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a base color of Watermelon Wonder.  I added two vertical strips from the Cherry on Top DSP.  Overlapping their seam, I put a vertical strip of Pool Party.

Hello - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To mimic the circles in the Cherry on Top DSP, I added two small circles in the bottom corner to help highlight the sentiment, “Hello.”
