Waltzingmouse Blog Hop...Happy Birthday!

I made this card for the CAS67 Shabby Chic and Clean and Simple challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. I think that it is almost an oxymoron to put these two together but I made an attempt and this is the result.

I didn't use any image stamps at all, just a word stamp...and it is from the Waltzingmouse Earth Angel set.
The paper is assorted designer paper from my stash.

...did I really use a die cut?...

Yes, I guess you could say that...but technically it is an embosslit. So can I say that I really didn't give in to die cuts? I made this for CAS65 on SCS.

I ran the popped up panel thru the BigShot with a texture plate. The texture plate and embosslit are from SU! as is the punch for the greeting. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. I sponged the embosslit flowers with apricot ink to give them some dimension.
Paper: SU! vanilla, apricot, wasabi, celery
Stamps: SU! small script
Accessories: Lots of Dimensionals!
