Simple Elegance

My gosh.. already Tuesday :-) i have to get my rear in gear to get my card for tomorrow done. Iam was the one who picked the image for the "old Magnolia challenge" and we start posting on our new blog tomorrow and i have not even started my card :-(

Is anybody of you going to the CHA in Florida next month? I just hared from my husband that he can take some days off work and we will be in Orlando. I would love to try meeting with you!

This card is a Magnolia Sweden DT card. So i wanted to make something that was finished fast.. so i could sent my cards back right away. I have noticed this great layout on SCS and just added some Shimmerz Baby's Breath spritz to the entire card. Sentiment was stamped with "Night of Navy".

Designer Papers: Basic Grey
Embellishments: Stampin up Ribbons, Prima Marketing swirls
Tools: Fiskars border punch, Nestabilities Label 4

Little GTO said...

Thought you'd get a kick out of my reading abilities. I'm reading the sentiment on the card and thought it said goats instead of goals. It's @#$% to get old. LOL!
The card is beautiful! Your shading on the beige paper is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing

Your card is absolutely stunning. It is so pretty and elegant. You are an amazing artist. I will be at CHA and would love to meet with you. Maybe some of your enormous talent will rub off on me. LOL! I will be there to do a little shopping for my LSS, getting to know some new DT members at the Moxie booth and be amazed at all of the other wonderful booths. I have never been before but I have heard it is a blast. xoxo, Christine
