Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a nice long lie in this morning! I had an email asking to see this card on the blog so voila! I have to admit that this was really a quick card that I made one night while I was in Florida and my daughter was there visiting me for my birthday. She said she had some school work that she had to get done while she was there and did I mind if she took an hour to finish it up. I told her that it gave me just enough time to put together another card for my shows so off I started on this one. Turns out it didn't take me an hour at all (but you just never know, do you!). I started with a piece of Graphic 45 paper that was 6" x 7 1/2" in size. I covered the top half with a sticky adhesive sheet and then peeled the backing paper off and added clear micro beads. I just love these micro beads, but they are a bit difficult to get a good picture of. I have a closer view below for you. I added a strip of goldenrod coloured card on which I stamped my sentiment. I then used one of the edgeability inserts and cut a lovely decorative design out of the card directly below my sentiment. I put a thin strip of black card directly behind my insert cut out, but matted the entire piece with pale yellow and black card. Before attaching it to my background, I cut one of the Vintage Lace borders out of the pale yellow and glued the edge of it to the bottom of the sentiment strip. I attached it to my background and added a black crocheted flower (from my stash, sorry Vee, I didn't crochet this one!) and a couple of leaves from the Bitty Blossoms set as accents. I couldn't resist adding some black rhinestone swirls to the top of the card and paper piercing the edge to complete this quick card. It still looks like a simpler version of a "Sue" card, don't you think!
