Stamp Simply--- it's gone to pot!

Well this week our challenge has gone to pot -- literally! It's Sharon's play on words! All you need to do for ssnotime90 is to incorporate some kind of a pot into our work-- flower pot, coffee pot.. whatever your creative mind can cook up! You can click HERE for all the official details!

Onto my creation!

I really played up the Stamp Simply part of this challenge and while there is no stamping on this card - it was a 10 minute creation! That's it!
To make my card, I used some Crafty Secrets Journal Notes (birds and botanicals), and some of the fabulous paper they sell in pads (I used the Radiant paper pad). See the flower pot??? ;-) FYI: While I got my goodies from Crafty Secrets - Sharon is now selling these fabulous items herself HERE!

Gosh, this card is too easy - no real explanation needed - mat up the journaling note, add some self stick gold pearls, some sheer ribbon, a button, some rounded corners and paper piercing and.... done!

Here's the fun part! I liked the first card so much, I made two others to give as a set! I used all the same ingredients! It took me less than a half hour to make all three cards!

Card #2
Card #3

And... here's a peek at the whole set together!
Be sure to hop on over to the rest of the Stamp Simply crew to see what they cooked up this week!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! See you back here soon!
