*IBS + The PDCC #190

Good afternoon-
Today I made a super clean and simple card using a Octagon stamp from Inspired by stamping.
Now, I these stamps are so AMAZING and the design team just rocked these stamps during the release hop, that I had to try use mine. 
I tried so hard to make something more elaborate and stamped maybe 5 times and was not happy with any of the ideas or thoughts that I had.  So waking up this morning, I had an "AH HA" moment. 
With the help of The Play Date Cafe Challenge color challenge this week, I was able to really pull this card off.  I added crystal bling with no really formation/direction to finish off the look. 

I am really proud of how this turned out and I am glad that I didn't completely give up on it.
Sometimes a little bit of time away, gives you a new perspective.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today.
