Monochromatic Rub-On

The Caardvarks challenge is to make a card using rub-ons! I've had some beautiful rub-ons from Fancy Pants and was happy to use them! Just look at that beautiful frame and flowers!!! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Green Thumb set stamped with Caramel ink. The cardstock is a piece from K&Company and it coordinted perfectly with the Caramel carstock card base. I finished off the card with some Close to Cocoa ink sponed around the edges and a bit of organdy brown ribbon. Sorry, not sure the company as it was a gift from a friend!!
I do like how this card turned out. I have been visiting Sharon's blog No Time to Stamp a lot lately and she has been commenting on how nice cards are easy if you use beautiful things. That is so true with this card - it was so easy but I think it has a simplistic beauty to it!!
If you have made a card using rub-ons post a link, I'd love to see it!!
Thanks for visiting.

So elegant! I agree -- simplicity really is the hallmark of elegance.

And I'm excited to see the sentiment because I just ordered that set. So much for simplicity in my stamp inventory!
