White Woodgrain with a Touch of Navy and Mint? Yes, please!

Hello, friends!  Happy Monday!  So... my Simon Says Stamp January card kit arrived last week and I couldn't WAIT to play with that goodness, let me tell you!  I instantly fell in love with the STUNNING woodgrain cardstock.  This stuff is GORGEOUS!  I decided it was instantly necessary to create a card that really let it shine, so I turned to the most recent challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays - the Thank You challenge.

Thank You

To create my card I began with a really pretty heavy weight navy cardstock (Night Mist)as the base. I then added the beautiful woodgrain cardstock, with one corner rounded, as the background layer. A adhered one of the kraft circle stickers from the kit and then stamped a little button from the Very Special stamp set, cut it out, and adhered it with foam tape. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set, Heyday Sentiments.

Thank You  (detail)

I love how the woodgrain paper just shines on this card! And the colors... I am really liking the navy and mint combo with the bright white! That's pretty fabulous! Just sayin'. You should probably try those colors. You will like them. I promise.

I hope you had a stupendous weekend! Don't forget to head on over to Fresh Squeezed Stamps to check out the new releases each day this week AND enter to win the new sets! For REALS!!!
