Simple is Pretty – Fancy Florets Card

You know how at holidays and birthdays, you agonize over what to give someone as a gift and you worry about if they will like it or not?  But then at the same time, you can be given just about anything and you are super excited about it?  That is what today’s card made me think of! 🙂

As I mentioned a few blog posts ago, I do a monthly card swap with the gals in my Fun n’ Crafty team.  And each time I’ve had to create a card, I wonder if it is interesting enough… does it look nice, etc.  And then I receive this card from my fabulous downline, Pam Wu.  It is so simple, yet very cute and vibrant in person!

I love how she used the new in-colors (Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green) and the Fancy Florets stamp set to create her own designer paper and cute look.

I wanted to share this card with someone else and while I was getting it ready, I thought it would be fun to grab a piece of the matching Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon and just simply tie it around the end of the card in a knot.  I thought it worked well too.  What do you think?

So, thank you, Pam!

I love the card and the reminder that you don’t have to go over the top to create a great card!
