Just a share

Hi all,

I just thought I'd share this quick & easy card that I made. I think the hardest part was the cutting out ;D. I really love how this card turned out & the best bit I made it up as I went along. This card I made in 5 minutes. All I did was ink the edges of a white card base with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Frayed Burlap, after that I applied a little bit of Tattered Rose in some places around the edges. Then I used Worn Lipstick on the flourish. The tag has Peeled paint on it, I did also use Antique Linen on the tag (Dots & flower Background stamp) but it didn't show up so well. The centres of the Dots & flowers stamp I used my white gel pen. The flower I stamped with a Stampin Up stamp on some left over mini misting experiment (gotta love that). The leaves I stamped on more scrap paper that has a subtle pattern on it. Added the ribbon, pearls & gems.

Amazing 5-minute card! Don't you love it when it all comes together? I love the ink distressing and pink/green color combo....

This doesn't look like a quick card. Sometimes they just seem to come together though. Love it:)

Gorgeous card Paula Looks so effective even if you say it was quick - looks like lots of effort went into it. The flourish looks awesome in the Worn Lipstick
