Gus & Gertie – Best Buds


Love You to the Moon and back…


Hey all! Today I have a pretty clean and simple card for you using a stamp set from Taylored Expressions. If you are familiar with their Gus & Gertie line you may recognize this set. It is called Best Buds and features Gus & Gertie doing some fun stuff! I opted to do this one with a mostly black and white palette, with two pops of color.


What do you think of these simple colors?
