Ya know what, looking back at some of my very old cards (this one is from 2006), for a long time there I wasn't using *any* patterned paper. And now I've got a ton of it! But sometimes it's nice to go back to the basics of nothing but ink and paper and stamps.

The flowers on this one aren't from Watercolor Garden, just the stems and leaves. And it's sad that this set has apparently been collecting dust since I made this card in 2008! Well, I broke it out for today's new card:
Apparently I was feeling old skool so no patterned paper...I got this idea to use only Whisper White (well, Thick WW) cardstock and stamp each panel with something different, but I wanted soft pastel colors. The Filigree background I did by sponging the ink on the stamp so it came out lighter, and pretty much everything else but the sentiment was stamped off once. There are some Pink Pirouette butterflies on the bee panel but they're really, really light.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:
And the Retro Rubber Challenge:
I figured that the spring flowers counted as Easter-y, after all isn't there a flower called an Easter lily? ;) Anyway, I've had Watercolor Garden for at least 10 years (whoa!), same for Filigree, and Fancy Flexible Phrases for 9 years. Hadn't really thought about it but I suppose I have been a stamper for over a decade now. Craziness!
The challenge over at Just Add Ink is to Just Add E--I think my Easter card qualifies.
Hope you have a good weekend, stampy folks. I'm off to the gym (again!) and then I've got some spring cleaning to do. Bleargh. But then it's date night with the hubs tonight so that makes it better. Cheers!
