It's that Stamp Simply time of week once again!
This week our challenge (ssnotime160) is "Back to Nature."
My go-to designer paper for this challenge just had to be 7 Gypsies "Conservatory," available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
This paper is absolutely appealing to me in every way!
Sharon is selling it in both 6 X 6" and 8 X 8" pads.
I layered up different patterns from the Conservatory pad with chocolate cardstock, distressing edges for a worn look. The birthday sentiment tag is JustRite's "All Occasion Nested Sentiments," stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
May Art's chocolate Brown Pleated Ribbon along with May Art's Natural Twine (both the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) adds a border with an unexpected mix of textures.
A fluffy feather along with a vintage button add the finishing touches to this week's nature design.

You may have wondered where I have been for the last couple of weeks...we were very fortunate and honored to have my husband's cousin and wife from Finland visit us for their first trip to the United States...we so enjoyed Kauko and Raili's company!
