Hello my crafty friends!

Just popping in to share a card with you that I made
for my sister.  I needed to send some photos to her, so
I made this card to help protect the photos.  But, mostly
I just wanted to make a card for my sis.:-)  I'm entering
this card over at Simon Says Stamp.   The theme is
for a non occasion card.  I need more cards like
these to store in my stash.:-)

For my card I started with Island Indigo card base.  I
used some pretty Prima paper for the floral background.
The stamp is from SU(Elementary Elegance).  Love this
stamp since it has such a pretty frame.  And, you
can insert any sentiment within the frame.  Sweet seam
binding ribbon from Paper Sweeties.  I topped off the
card with a bright button and gems. 

Well, today is my cleaning day and I have more work
to do.  Thank you so much for dropping by.  I hope
you have a wonderful crafty weekend!  Take care,


Paper:  SU, Prima(Madeline)
Ink:  SU(Island Indigo
