Paper Crafts Gallery Idol!

Once again, Paper Crafts is holding auditions for their version of American Idol...Gallery Idol!
I had to submit at least one card (probably a few more to come) and give it a whirl this time around. The theme is "Congratulations" which leaves the field WIDE open!

I decided on a clean & simple masculine card...

I started by stamping A to Z in Crumb Cake Ink and my sentiment in Early Espresso. Then I stamped and clear embossed the leaf image. Next, I sponged Old Olive ink over the image. I finished off the card with a simple button tied up with Linen Thread.

Are you going to try out this year? Did you know the grand prize winner will set sail aboard the Paper Crafts Cruise!?! Come on, it's a no brainer :)

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Happy Stamping!
