This card qualifies for my Stamping 911 category . . . cards or crafts that can be constructed in 10 minutes or less.  Click here for more Stamping 911 samples.  The sentiment was inked in Basic Gray ink and stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.   It's matted on Basic Gray Textured card stock.  Yum!  TIP:  My Filigree Designer Brad is added with a Mini Glue Dot and topped with a Robin's Nest Gold Dew Drop (also attached with a Mini Glue Dot).

I layered this gorgeous pattern from Urban Garden Designer Series Paper (top) and Very Vanilla Textured card stock (bottom) over a Basic Gray textured card base (4.25 x 5.5).   Three more Robin's Nest Gold Dew Drops accent the corner.  Voil?!

Stay tuned for my blog makeover 🙂

  10. Getting the ‘Heard from the Heart’ set was the best thing I ever did. I’m loving my set and I just got it four days ago. 🙂 Is the filigree brad still available from SU or is it retired? Only one more day until the winter mini is released! I can’t wait to order my stamps and the DSP as you’ve convinced me that I need a few of the sets. LOL

    P.S. The card is so pretty – thanks for sharing it. It’s being added to my CASE list. 🙂
