{SS} #151:Use Kraft

Good morning sweeties!!  It's Tuesday and you know what that means, it's time for SweetStamps weekly challenge.  This weeks theme is my favorite...I use it all the time and it's a MOST have in everyone's cardstock collection.  What am I referring to?
For my card this week, I wanted to do something very clean and simple, yet gorgeous!
So I stamped the beautiful Apple Blossom, using rich cocoa memento ink.  The flowers have been colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The edges of the cardstock has been inked with antique and walnut distress inks.
I really like the way it came out!!!  Just the way I wanted it to!! :)
