Be Still..

I am back today with another fantastic Verve Plain Jane! I love these little $3 stamps! They make the best focal point and really I find myself building the whole card around the sentiment!

Another crazy thing about this card is I only used ONE stamp and that was the sentiment! The patterned paper is minds eye and I think works as another great addition to the focal point! Just to add a little "sturdiness" I took a piece of cardstock and taped it to the back of the paper so it wouldn't feel so flimsy when I put it up on foam tape!

I want to use Dark Chocolate Swiss Dot Satin ribbon on EVERY card I make. I really do. So in trying to break the habit, I simply used a smaller piece this time. This is my way of weaning myself off it! hehe!

Thanks for looking today! Hope you like it!

Oh and one quick little note!  SUPER excited to see THIS today!  Thank you to Ashley and Embellish Magazine!  And  to Lisa at Inchie Arts!   What a great surprise today in my google reader!  I am just beyond excited!  :)

  11. I like the plain janes, too! I don;t have very many of them now, but hopefully that'll change soon. Your card that won the embelllish chalenge is one that I look at time and time again and was the MAIN reason I bought the scor buddy AND Kind Words. It was just a truly fabulous card. I even copied it onto my computer for inspiration!

    Your card today is also very pretty. I love how you mix colors..I would never think to add the polka dot ribbon here, but it looks fantastic! Great job..and congrats! :)
