Fifth Avenue Simplicity

Isn't it great when we can make a SIMPLE, quick and beautiful card? I wish I could take full credit for this one, but I was totally inspired by the simplicity of this card. It's not my normal card and I don't usually CASE cards, but sometimes I have a hard time doing quick and simple - and those are important! So I decided not to reinvent the wheel and kreate this for our third card at my recent stamp a stack. And I'm happy to say it got lots of ooooos and aaaahhhs. Instead of adding rhinestones, I highlighted my stamins with the VersaMarker and heat set Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The perfect little pizazz for this simple, under 15 minute kreation. I wish you could get the full effect, but photos rarely pick up the shimmer (if you click the photo to enlarge you may see it a bit better). It really is so pretty in person. The final touch, a piece of Pacific Point ribbon tied in a knot and adhered with some glue dots. Simple right?! Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by to visit.
