Be Yourself - Magnolia-licious 'CAS'

Hello.  Happy Tuesday.

We're midway in our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme is 'Clean and Simple (CAS).'  I hope you'll join us--there's one more week before the end of the challenge.  Please hop to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get complete details on the challenge and don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you.

Here's the card that I came up with.

This is just about as clean and simple as I can make it...ha ha.  Difinitely not my style!  Looks only half-finished to me.  My fingers are just itching to add some embellishments, LOL.  So I'll probably end up doing that at some later date.

Here's a closer look at the Magnolia Stamps image being featured.

- Jester Tilda from the Princes and Princesses Collection 2012

The stamp for the above image and other Magnolia Stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
And other-brand stamps that the store carries include Stamping BellaWee StampsWild Rose StudiosSaturated Canary and Crafter's Companion.
