Playing with the Paper Players

I  am not sure if I have ever played along with this challenge or not. I know I always mean to but then I forget.  This week is a clean and simple sketch challenge.  Just what I need for a masculine card and I am forcing myself to use a stamp set I bought way too long ago to admit to--when the new catalog first came out.  (this is my first time using it) so what better way to get acquainted with the set than with a clean and simple sketch?! 

Here is the sketch...you can see the original challenge post on their page by clicking on the sketch below.


I am not really sure I like the card I created--feels like it needs something but I was really trying to keep it SIMPLE.

Stamps:  Clockworks, Vintage Verses (SAB 2013)
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Other: sponges, brad

Hope you had a great weekend!  Glad to have an extra day with my son since tomorrow is a holiday--we are going rock climbing!  Always a good time. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Wonderful card...love the antiquing. I did not get this set as I have the clock set from a few years back...maybe I made an error in judgement...LOL!
