A Clean and Simple Corner Garden - PP394

Hiya friends, and welcome to another week with The Paper Players!  This week my talented friend, Laurie is our hostess and she's asked us to created a Clean-and-Simple card featuring Blooms:
I knew right away what I was going to do but the hardest part was figuring out which color to use...
In the end, I decided that the white embossed blooms looked the prettiest on the dark green.  Have you heard about the SU Color Revamp?  Every once in awhile, SU refreshes their color palette by letting go of some colors and bringing in new ones.  This year, I was thrilled to see the return of several retired favorites, including Mossy Meadow featured on today's card!  My card is as simple as can be...just one layer heat embossed with one of my favorite [retired] stamps, Corner Garden.  The sentiment is also heat embossed and comes from a current set, Beautiful Bouquet. 
I left room on the inside for a hand-written note but stamped the garden again on Whisper White in Mossy Meadow ink.  That's it for me....clean-and-simple!  Be sure to check out all the inspiration from the rest of the team at The Paper Players:

Lovely card, definitely clean & simple. Love the white embossing on a dark color such as your green, very pretty (nice stamp too, don't remember this one).

What a lovely and elegant card, Nance. I love that corner garden image embossed in white on dark card stock, sorry I missed out on that stamp! Love the inside in the reverse colors, too.

Just beautiful Nance and a great way to welcome back Mossy Meadow! I'm excited about the colour revamp too, so much lovely new colour in there. Love the reverse inside and out stamping on today's card too - very effective!

Nance, this looks fabulous. I think it's great the way you've reversed the colours inside. Such a pretty stamp - can't understand how I don't own it! :-)
