Let me start off by saying - I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SET since there are so many possibilities for it.  Today I am going to share with you a blog hop staple for me -CAS (clean and simple) home decor.  

I started out by stamping all my images and saying from Columns and Topiaries in memento tuxedo black ink onto white card stock before coloring with prismacolor markers.  Then I pulled out Scenic Selections and stamped the grass in forest moss before adding some birds in memento black then stippling tumbled glass over and around entire image.  Finally, I pulled out one of my $1 store frames and added the stamped panel for a quick and easy home decor project that took only 20 minutes to make, even with a migraine. ;)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

Stamps: MFP Columns and Topiaries, Scenic Selections
