Simple Valentine

Sometimes its a nice challenge to push myself to do something that is not normally "my style" when it comes to cardmaking.  This card definitely falls into that category.  First off, anyone that really knows me knows that I struggle when it comes to the color pink.  It has to be my least favorite on the color wheel; I can't express what a blessing it is to have two boys so I don't have to be bombarded with ruffles, frills, and varying shades of Pepto!  Irregardless I'm trying to incorporate a little more pink into my life, starting with a dabble here and there in some of my work...we'll see if it goes any farther than that ;) 

You'll also notice I haven't stamped a thing, colored a thing, drawn a thing, or even sponged a thing - normally this would make my work feel "naked" to me!  However, there really is a lot of texture, color and movement in this card - proof you can have an interesting card without tons of other "stuff".  A card like this is perfect for a newbie stamper; minimal supplies and time required!


Stamp sets: none
Cardstock: Primrose Petals, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Basic Gray
Ink: none
Accessories: Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Scallop edge border punch, Fashionable Hearts embosslits, 1 1/4" Basic Gray/Basic Black two-tone ribbon, snail adhesive

Can I just say I'm LOVING this new two tone ribbon?  It has the most beautiful shimmer and really adds a little something extra to projects!  I'll be sharing a project I created solely around this ribbon tomorrow so be sure to check back!

Until next time...
