Not SO "Wanted"

I was playing with the "Wanted" set by Stampin' Up! I'm not real thrilled with this card but I thought I'd post it anyway. Just to show you that not all the things I create are great. I do like the decorative papers.

The green on the top is the backside of the stipes on the bottom. I used three stamps from the "Wanted" set and Sahara Sand ink and decorated that top piece. I added a strip of brown velvet ribbon. I stamped the round stamp using Chocolate Chip ink on vanilla card stock and punched it out with a large 2 1/8" circle cutter. I sponged the edges in Chocolate Chip. Then I took the scalloped punch and punched out a piece in Chocolate Chip card stock. I thought I'd just make this a thank you card and used the set "Define Your Life" and layerd the words on a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock and attached it to the lower right of the card. It's a simple card but it just doesn't do it for me. Maybe it will grow on me!!
Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win the Blog Candy stamp set.
Thank you for stopping by,

I like this card. The colors go well together and the sentiment is emphasized. Sometimes "simple" speaks louder than you think! Nice job. Jackie
