Thanks So Much

Reposted: This card was published in the December, '07 issue of Cards, pg.161.

I think that I'm taking my pix at the wrong time of day, lately. Today, it was close to dusk, so I think that's why all of the cards that I photographed are showing up with a weird cast to them.

Anywho, I just thought that this little flower turned out so cute! I spent a couple of hours on another card I made the same day (at Mimi's house), and about 5 minutes on this one, and I like this one 100% better! Don't you love when that happens! lol I'll post that one later in the week. For the next 3 days, though, I'll share some matching clean and simple cards that I made recently.

I was able to play with some of Mimi's new stuff, including Stem Sayings, Little Flowers, Scallop Circle Punch, and Think Happy Thoughts. I Cuttlebugged the Scallop punch with my Bubbles folder, and only inked part of the Stem Sayings because of the small card (4 1/4 square). And I really like the little ribbon leaves.

Hope you like it, and that you have a great Monday! See you tomorrow!

  1. What a cute card. I love how effective the flower looks on a white background and what a great way to use up pieces of ribbon.

  2. I like the clean simple cards --- very sharp. I was just looking at these two SU sets yesterday, trying to decide what to order for my Aug club order -- hmmm...maybe I will get them!

    Colors are great and like the detail on the corner.

  3. I love this, too! Sometimes it just feels right to do something so clean and uncluttered. Your ribbon leaves are just right!

  4. Love your stuff!! To help you on the photo shooting, the morning sun works least this is what works best for me! The morning sun, if done in slight shade offers just the right amout of light in. I have tried in the afternoon, but the sun is waaay to bright and washes out the images on the cards:)

  5. What a great card!! I love the simplicity of it!! It's beautiful!!

  6. Love the use of the ribbon as "leaves". It's great to see the use of white cardstock as your base. I don't see it used that way too often but I'm glad you did here. I love its simplicity!

  7. Very nice- I love the use of the ribbon!

  8. This is so cute, and I love the stem and leaves!

  9. That is totally cute! What a cool idea using ribbon for the leaves.

  10. yes I love when that happens! Very cute card. I just love it when something comes together and makes things simple.

  11. I love the simplicity of this card!

  12. I love how crisp and clean this is, just super! And the ribbon for leaves- clever!
