Hello Lovelies! I'm pushing the limit on clean and simple with today's card...and I am NOT going to apologize!
From the first moment that I saw the Ticking Background Stamp, all I could think about was a pinstriped suit and that I could make a sassy card for my Hubby! I alsoreally wanted to use my new Blue Skies ink-cubes and was surprised at how easily they inked this large stamp.
I normally would choose my larger ink pads to color a large rubber stamp, but it's really nice to know that these bite-sized cubes will also do the trick.
Let's take a look at the key supplies.

Make a little bow-tie out of 1/2" - 3/4" navy ribbon
Adhere sentiment and bow-tie to card to complete.
I'm so happy to get a chance to us a little of the ribbon I've been collecting (hoarding) all these years.
The monochromatic color scheme keeps things simple but sharp!
My hubby appreciates my cards but he is not much of a fan of a lot of color, so this all-blue card should be a winner. (It does have his favorite color!)
Lovelies, I hope you like my Made-In-Minutes Series. I love it when a card comes together quickly and sometimes you don't have as much time as you want to craft!
