A Touch of Elegance

Here is a simple somewhat elegant card I made awhile back using this great stamp from Serendipity Stamps. I actually made this card for a CPS challenge. I believe it was challenge number 48. Anyhow, I used one of my all time favorite Stampin Up colors, Baroque Burgandy as my base. For this one I did a square shaped card, which I love but then never have envelopes for them. I embossed using my Cuttlebug. I only colored in one vase for more of the spotlight technique effect and added stickles to the pink flower. The image is mounted on Mellow Moss. And that great Bling Bling on the ribbon I picked up at Michael's dollar spot.

I hope you like my simple card today. I almost forgot I still had this one.

Till Later....

Oooh pretty! Love the vase image and only one coloured. That background is also perfect for your card.
