Simple Stems

I'm back! It was lovely to get away for a while, but it's even better to be back home. We got such an exuberant welcome from our dog Coco. He hasn't let me out of his sight since I walked in the door.
Here's a quick card before I fall into bed. I still haven't finished unpacking!
One thing I love about the "Stem Silhouettes" stamp set, is it really lends itself to simple, sophisticated card designs. You don't need to do anything too fussy with it. I love this colour Combination: Bordering Blue, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. It's so serene and peaceful. I don't know if you can see it clearly in the photo, but I've stamped the stem image on the right twice, once in Bordering Blue, and once in Sahara Sand (stamped off once to give just a pale shadow). The Bordering Blue panel has been popped up on Dimensionals. And of course, that wide ribbon has snuck in there again!
I promise I'll be posting more regularly now that I'm back!
