This clean and simple congratulations using Beautiful Friendship stamps reminds me of why I love card making!  I’m using the current sketch from Freshlymade Sketches, and I love their simple approach to sketches.  I only used six items to make this card – doesn’t get simpler than that.

Why am I so happy with the simple, especially today, because we are in the middle of selling out house, both kids are moving to new places and starting new jobs, my husband is about to retire and the Holiday Catalog starts in about two weeks!

Read on to see how you make this card but…
