Nothing Better

I was sitting on our deck last night and and idea for a CAS (clean and simple) card came to mind. I really love when an idea just pops into my head and I am happy with the end result!! My initial idea was to make a one layer card with just the flowers. I decided I wanted to use Kraft cardstock and Papertrey's In Bloom set, you can fancy the flowers up or they stand alone so beautifully!! When I pulled the set out I decided to use some of the leaves and add Spring Moss into the mix. I think these 2 colors together along with the black ink are pretty!!! I rounded all of the corners and scored around the top layer of cardstock. At the last minute I decided to add the sentiment, glad I did, I think it finishes the card off nicely. I thought about trying to find the right spot for ribbon but I don't think the card really needs it.


Stamps: Papertrey In Bloom

Paper: Papertrey Kraft & Spring Moss

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx


  1. Beeeeeeee-auti-ous, my dear!!....and now that *I* have a Scor-Pal (finally), I can try something like this, too! :)

  2. SO PRETTY!! Love what you did with the Scor-Pal.. (I LOVE mine too!!!)

  3. I love the simplicity of this design and how the little details really make it stand out!

  4. PUT THE RIBBON DOWN! LOL! This card is truly perfect as it is, anything else would just 'clutter' it!
    I love your Kraft bloom - just stunning!

  5. This is beautiful! I love the kraft paper and the pop of green!
