Clean & Simple Challenge- 256!

It is amazing how I can sit down to stamp a card and then wonder what I am going to make.  However, if given a sketch the ideas begin to flow.  The minute I saw this sketch, I knew I would use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set I received at Convention along with Yippee-Skippee!  I first stamped the background splatters in Basic Gray then added the lines in Stazon Black.  The sentiment was stamped in Real Red.  Just the simple border of black was not enough for me so I added a thin sliver of Real Red card stock. 

This is definitely not my usual style but was fun never-the-less because it took me out of my comfort zone.  I then made a custom envelope using the new Envelope Punch Board.  Some advice before you use it.  It does come with written instructions which make the process so much easier!!!!  I bet you can guess why I am offering this tidbit.
