Simple Elegance

I got a bit of time to stamp tonight. Yeah!! This card has no stamping however. I just used Whisper White cardstock for the base, some Soft Sky and Mellow Moss textured cardstock, one sticker strip from a scrappin' kit, self-stick pearls and this pre-made flower embellishment. This card screams elegance to me! Sometimes when I create a "less is more" design, I keep thinking I need to add something to it. Not this one. I wanted to leave it simple. Any sentiment or message I add will be stamped inside the card only. I really wanted the flower to stand out and by adding the self-stick pearls, I feel like it helped tie the whole elegant look together. It might look flat and boring on the screen, but it's way prettier in person.

You can see the yummy textures and details here. *click either pic for a closer look*

Riley was so good for me tonight! I put a big pillow and a blanket on the floor near my craft table and he rested like a good boy. He'd run up and down the steps to see daddy or mommy, then whimper for attention. He chewed his rawhide, bit his red blanket and enjoyed a little pup snack while I stamped some. The "part" in the hair on his head is nuts. I brush and brush and it just gets wonky all over again. You keep seeing pics of him in his jacket, too. It's nice that he doesn't mind it so when it's time to go outside he's already warm and cozy.

He even helped me pick out the sticky pearls for this card. LOL! Yes, he's on my table! LOL!

I'll have another very simple winter card and a scrapbook page to share later this week. Don't faint...I am feeling all bloggy right now! Eek!!!!!!

I haven't shared any good songs lately. How about THIS one. Enjoy! Remember, that in God's eyes we are all beautiful!
