Bird and Vines

Today challenges on Splitcoaststampers were the CAS80 and TLC286. I got out the same stamp set I used on the card I posted yesterday. It is the set my sister gave me in the beautiful tin I showed. I've had those stamps for probably two years and never used them. Now that I have, I am just loving them. They're really beautiful, though I had never heard of the company she got them from.

The CAS challenge today was a beautiful sketch and the TLC challenge was to use ribbon without the standard bow or knot. I kept my ribbon very simple since it was also on the Clean and Simple card.

Stamps: Cavallina Papers & Co., Inc. for the bird and vine image
Inkadinkado Garden Flower for the sentiment
Paper: Stampin'Up! Not Quite Navy, white cs from LSS
Ink: Night of Navy
Punch: Martha Stewart Woodland Branch edge punch
