Simple Thinking of You Card


This card is an unusual one for me - there isn't any Cricut involved! 


I bought these beautiful handmade papers a couple of years ago when we visited our son in San Francisco.  I hadn't used any of them yet - too pretty!  I decided to make a quick card using one small piece.


Since I just recently did Mandy's Scrappy-Go-Lucky card swap/blog hop with the black white and silver scheme I was attracted to this silver and white paper which I placed on a black A2 card base.


The silver sentiment was from a sheet of "peel-offs" that my friend Agnes from Scotland sent me a while ago.  These are fun to use for a change from stamps or Cricut cut sentiments.


I added Creative Charms Pure Blossoms jewels in two shades of pink on top of the silver flowers.  I used Glue Dots to attach the flowers.


Beautiful paper, a shiny sentiment and the sparkly gems make a simple, pretty card to send to a friend.


Just a quick post today - I have a lot going on and I'll tell you more about that soon...

  6. This card is absolutely stunning -- of course, I've also been in the black, white, and silver mode while following the blog of beautiful creativity last week. Adding the two shades of pink for the bling is the additional WOW factor -- I am in love with this card!

    Thank you for another beautiful card. Simple is so great.
    I love simple and yet I get stuck on making more elaborate cards and don't know why I complicate things so. :)
    Anyway, I love your cards and blog.
