Life Is Good

Here's a simple card I made using one of Verve's last release stamp sets, Artful Elegance. I say "simple" because the only thing that's stamped is the scalloped circle. The background is patterned paper from the All Dressed Up Stack from Die Cut With a View (DCWV). I thought the flourishes in the patterned paper would go well with the Artful Elegance circle. I just added a gemstone, some paper piercings and ribbon and had a finished card. Don't you love when a card comes together that quickly? I sure do! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps-Artful Elegance (Verve Stamps); Ink- Certainly Celery (SU), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), Basic Black (SU), All Dressed Up Stack (DCWV); Accessories- scallop circle punch, scallop border punch (SU), paper piercer, wide Celery grosgrain (SU); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
