Simple Scrappy Card

Hi Everyone!! My kids volunteered for the Key Club this weekend. My daughter will be the president of the club next year and she's currently the treasurer and my son currently is the vice president. They helped out the Temecula community auction that was held this weekend at our community arts theater to help raise funds for the community choir group.

My daughter designed the Riverside County District Key Club t-shirt this year and they are pictured with the T-shirt. My daughter has over 150 volunteer hours under her belt and my son just met the 100 mark. Whoohoo! They volunteer for the community on weekends for many charitable events, community services, etc. I'm so proud of their accomplishments!!

Just a simple card for today. This card is what I call slap it on card meaning slap whatever that fits. LOL!
I used the SU crimper to create the crimped background and rubbed an ink pad over it. Simple.

I'm really not feeling the flower but it's a scrap piece that I had so I had to use it. Nothing much else to the card.
I don't know the brands of the materials that I used because all of the pieces were scrap pieces. I believe the polka dot DP is by DCWV but I'm not sure. I know the flower is a die cut by Sizzix.

Hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!!
