Silvia had a wonderful idea for the Limited Supplies Challenge today (LSC225): Make a card using a different language on it. I assume she meant different from your native tongue (which in my case is Dutch), but I thought I should use something other than English as well. Luckily, I own the Spanish version of the Elegant Thank You stamp set (of 1) — one of the Under $10 items in the back of the catalog.

I also followed the sketch of this week’s Clean and Simple Cards challenge (CAS19). Using the distressed-looking Razzleberry Lemonade paper for my background, I decided to “roughen” things up even more by using the distressing tool in the Cutter Kit and tearing the edges of my image panel. Hopefully my card is not too “dirty” for the “clean” & simple challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Vera! This reminds me of an old tile. Love the colors and distressing.

    Wonderful DAS* card! Those two stamps and the color palette you used make it seem right out of an old Spanish building.

    *dirty and simple. ;)
