Very Sweet Indeed

We're down to the wire now...only two days left until the "so very sweet" announcement!! Don't forget to keep checking back...

Until then, how about a very sweet card? :-) A simple design, barely any stamping. I purchased some Crate paper (this design is called Crush) from Eclectic Paperie (ps - don't they just have the best stamping stuff??) a few weeks ago and have barely been able to put it down. This card is a combination of a few of those papers (the tag and polka dotted pieces) and a piece from my other favorite paper designer, Amy Butler. How about the cool velvet ribbon? Also from Crate paper, you get a bunch of darling spools of ribbon on a giant ring that coordinates with the paper! Oh my spinning head!! The "so very" and "sweet" words are from a retired SU! set, So Very.

This piece came together quickly but then I sat there and looked at the separate parts (I tend to create as I go, alternating pieces of cardstock, ribbon, etc. on the card base until I find a design I like) but I just wasn't satisfied; something was missing. So I let the card sit overnight and the next night spied my giant primas on my counter and thought...ah...the perfect fit. Another card was complete!

Happy Creating!
