Let your heart speak

Here's a stunning image from Sweet Pea stamps artist Ching Chou Kuik called Hello Magnolia that I added with gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress today to create this beautiful card.  I embellished with simple border punches and wonderful sequins.

The base of the card is a beautiful orche color called Tuscan Sun.  I added some navy cardstock called Blue Basis on each side and used a Martha Stewart border punch.  I printed out my image on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest paper and layered it on Basis Black. Then I trimmed out the image again.  The sentiment is from Cosmo Crickett.

I think this simple card turned out very elegant and she's just perfect for those forlorn teens as well as friends who just need a friend's touch.

Cheers, Holley
