A true friend...

I really love this card. It seems simple, yet kind of elegant. I think that just maybe my friends might be happy to find it in their mailbox.
The stamp is a new one from A Muse Artstamps, and the paper is from the BasicGrey Stella Ruby collection.
I stamped the image using VersaMagic Jumbo Java, then clear embossed it with JudiKins detail embossing powder. Then I punched the Marvy Mega Scalloped Square from Bazzill paper, and aged it a bit by sponging the Jumbo Java ink on the edges. The layers of Bazzill dark pink cardstock were also aged with Jumbo Java to give it that "shabby chic" look.

The flowers on the card were from my stash, and are from Making Memories as well as Prima. They looked a bit too fresh and bright, so I mustered up my courage and sponged them with the Jumbo Java as well. (I hadn't tried that before. Whew, it worked!)

I have been in a shabby chic mood lately...can you tell?

Thank you for the comment on my card, I am even more honored as I think your cards are gorgeous. Wow, you have such a wonderful eye for color, that's my big weakness.
I'll definitely be visiting your blog more often, I love your stuff.
