I stayed home from work again today...still sick, but feeling marginally better. Maybe in another day or two I will be back to normal. I hope?

I did manage to do two things today. I made this card, and unloaded the that order! That was the total extent of my exertion! Other than that, I was on the couch or in bed all day! You can't imagine how unusual that is for me!

This card was inspired by one made by my idol Debbie Olson . You can see her card HERE . I think everything she does is just over-the-top gorgeous!

The stamp is from Wordsworth. I absolutely adore the elegance of their images! This stamp is called Love and you can buy it HERE .

The image was stamped using VersaMark ink, then embossed with detail white embossing powder.

I used my Concave Corner Punch on each of the four coners, then layered it twice. I love the little pearlized brads in each corner. I will be adding them to my store soon.

There are actually two ribbons, a white dotted May Arts ribbon layered on top of a pale pink sheer ribbon, then tied a bow.

The designer paper is from Stampin' Up, and is called Holiday Harmony.

That's it for me tonight. I'm posting a bit early so I can get back to bed! Thanks so much for all your sweet comments and well wishes! You guys are absolutely the best!

how did you manage to create such a beautiful card while you feel so bad? You're amazing! I LOVE this DP, it makes everything look so rich and velvety. I love how you doubled the ribbon and tied it too, and what a great stamp! It's just a beautiful card! You take good care of yourself and just veg and sip chicken soup until you feel better. Get well soon!
