Wisteria Thoughts

Howdy, folks!  I'm still getting my stampin' groove back, but I'm taking it kinda slow for now.  I hope to get to work on some scrapping this weekend, but for today I have a clean-lines card to share:


I almost said CAS, but I think it's not quite *that* clean and simple.  I used the inspiration photo at Inkspirational:


Thought about putting a butterfly on my card, but I decided to let the Crushed Curry pattern from the Sweater Weather DSP suffice for my bit of yellow/orange.  I also used this week's challenge from Freshly Made Sketches:

I put the Wild Wasabi Candy Dots at the top rather than the bottom because I thought it balanced better that way with the sentiment already in the lower right of the image panel.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Too Kind
Ink:  Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi, Concord Crush (for some reason I like this better than Elegant Eggplant to layer with Wisteria Wonder)
Paper:  Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Whisper White, Sweater Weather DSP
Accessories:  Corner rounder punch, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Subtles Candy Dots
