Keeping it Clean and Simple

The challenge for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is to keep it clean and simple. {check!}
I bought this Rubbernecker tree stamp at a trade show a couple years ago and barely used it (tsk tsk). I pulled out some textured cream-colored linen cardstock and stamped both the image and Northwoods sentiment with Versamark, then embossed it all with gold embossing powder. I rounded the corners for a softer look. This card couldn't have been any easier to create, and it's a one-stamp mailer to boot! Win Win!!

I hope you're enjoying your Thursday!
