Bright Blossoms Beauty!

As simple as this card is, so is it beautiful.  It's such a sweet looking card.  I saw it on one of Terri's display boards and I had to take a photo of it because I wanted to make it.  As I was looking in my phone for the photo I saw that I had taken a photo of this card at the last event!  Hmmm, that must have meant that I really liked it (and still like it). In fact I liked it SO much that I just had to make one.  

My red polka dot background paper is a little different.  The one on the display had smaller dots.  Mine is from the new polka dot decorative papers.  And my ribbon is different.  I'm going to have to make a note to myself to order some current ribbons.  Though I don't think it matters to those who copy cards. We tend to use what we have on hand or what is current.  So you just substitute!  Whatever works, right?

This was a very fun card to make.  I used markers to color in the image, then I embossed it with the oval embossing folder.  I have not used those two little folders much and I need to start.  I need to start using a lot of my stuff more!!!

You can't see it in this photo but the front panel was set in place using Dimensionals.  I like how the original artist of this card used the pretty red button for a flower.  I LOVE those little buttons.  Once again, it's an item in my workroom that I need to start using more of. I have more retired buttons, brads, eyelets, etc. than I care to mention.  I use to use them sparingly and when you do that you end up with retired products, LOTS of them!  Use the stuff you have, don't hoard it!  LOL

This was a very fun card and not to mention simple and quick too.  It can be used for SO many occasions too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
