Back to Simply Loonie

I want to thank everyone who commented about my first tutorial and I can imagine your husband will be asking how come you're buying coffee filters often or buying coffee filters even if you're not a coffee drinker...LOL! I would love to see what you guys do with your filters :)

Pen (<-- my sister), if you want to be surprise for your birthday, stop reading NOW!

I created this card for my sisters birthday next week over the weekend and intend to post it on her birthday but I was too tired to create last night so I'm posting it today. Anyway, I've missed couple of weeks of combining both challenges from Clean and Simple Stamping (sketch) and Loonie Stamper's Challenge (color combination) and here it is.


Stamp: Woman of Life from Papertrey Ink

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Brushed Silver from Stampin' Up

Ink
: Basic Black and Real red classic ink

Accessories
: White gross grain ribbon, white brads, Embossed white shimmer ribbon from Michael's and Stamping Dimensional
