Simply Sketched à la Germaine

Welcome back friends to another shared pre-hop posting by Jean and Germaine.

Germaine is back once again to share her beautifully monochromatic Simply Sketched creation.  And using one of my favorites of the new In Colors...Baked Brown Sugar.  Love that color!  The variety and layout of the many layers on this wonderful card really adds to the texture that the burlap ribbon with button brings to the fore don't you think?

  Simply Sketched is one of my favorites of the current crop of Hostess Stamp Sets.  As you can see from the online store picture this set gives you a variety of images for every occasion as well as the sentiments to make them all work.  A real work horse of a stamp set.  And available free to hostesses (or customers) with qualifying orders.

Here's Germaine's shared description of her card:

I really like the pretty little sparrow from Simply Sketched.  I like this set because it gives my group the option to use the same card design as a thank you, birthday, or sympathy card.

I used Baked Brown Sugar and VeryVanilla card stock.  And the use of the Hardwood stamp makes an excellent background.  The ribbon is burlap and I made the medium clay button (using our Stampin' Up molds and Simply Pressed Clay), also used linen thread as the twine for the button.
