A Beautiful Thing

I was given this set by a friend in a trade. I really like it and have been having fun playing with it. I've been on a quick and simple design lately. It seems like I never have time, so the quick and simple has been wonderful to get cards made!

Stamps - A Beautiful Thing
CS - Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey Paper (forget which collection though)
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava
Other - Striped Brown Ribbon, Orange Candy Jewels (for the flower centers), 1 3/8" Square Punch

The card below was made by my oldest daughter, Madison. Every time I sit to stamp, she always asks if she can make a card too. She wanted to copy my card above. She picked out the card stock and ribbon. Then she went to work on her card. The only thing she asked me to help with was tying the knot for the ribbon. I think it turned out beautiful - not just bragging because I'm her mom either. ;) She decided to send this to her aunt (godmother) to let her know she loves her.

Stamps - A Beautiful Thing
CS - Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, WW
Ink - Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip
Other - Pink Dotted ribbon (from my stash), 1 3/8" Square Punch
