Simplicity and What Was For Dinner

As I was designing this card, I was aiming for a zen, spa-like feel in the layout and colors. I used my new Unity stamps, though I don't know why I got this set because it is very similar to SU's Stem Silhouettes! Oh, and yes, the bamboo branch is upside down, I just realized that. Oops!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Gratitude=Joy (Unity)
paper - artichoke, sky, sand, moss
ink - artichoke craft
acc - choc taffeta, silver brads

And what was for dinner last night! (I tried to post last night, but we were having some pretty good thunderstorms. I gave up after the electricity went out twice.)

It was yummy! Layers of lettuce, cucumber, grilled shrimp, peas, cheese tortellini, red pepper, topped with a dressing of pesto, mayo, and buttermilk. The perfect summer dinner!
