Simply Monday

{ippity} Simply Home Monday that is!

I've been playing with metals (see yesterday's post for the class I took), so I embossed the little sheep from the {ippity} Simply Home set on an aluminum sheet from 10 Seconds Studio.  I ink distressed the c/s edges, placed 3 brads on the upper left corner, added ribbon, added the sentinment and this is it...a really simple card.  Oh, and I also used the green striped paper from the 'be loved' My Mind's Eye pack.  Due to the metal reflecting off the camera (even with no flash), this card looks better IRL:

I also created a simple layer inside with some ribbon to be able to write something in the card:

This is the last day to get a FREE Unity Palette Inkpad with your {ippity} order from me!  If you're interested in making a purchase, click HERE to order.  (No need to add the inkpad, as I will automatically include it in your order.)

Have fun browsing through {ippity} today!
