Absolutely Fabulous!

Sarah Moore of Sarah and the Stampstars 52 Cards a Year week five challenge was to make a one layer card.

Here's my second card for her challenge, she posted 6 challenges already and I've done two but hey, doing 2 challenges than none is better ... right?!? It took me about 2 minutes to do this card and I'm really happy on how it turned out.

Flowers are from Both Way Blossoms set and is stamped on whisper white card stock with staz-on jet black ink, watercolored using tempting turquoise and mellow moss stampin' up reinkers. I put some glue in the middle of the flowers and added dazzling diamond. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Absolutely Fabulous set. Card is finished with Martha Stewart ribbon.

Stamps: Both Way Blossoms and Absolutely Fabulous from Stampin' Up

Paper: Whisper White from Stampin' Up

Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Mellow Moss classic ink by Stampin' Up

Accessories: Two-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamond from Stampin' Up and Martha Stewart ribbon

Hey C, I LOVE the simplicity of this card! It really works for me! i recognised that ribbon immediately - having bought some on my last trip to the states. My hubby looked at me with that "huh...?" look - how on earth, with that mountain of ribbon up there, did you know that...? See, a true addict! PS thanks for leaving the lovely comments - I appreciate it! bx
