In all of the craziness I have going on....I forgot about my brother and his wife's 25th wedding anniversary! UUGGGHHHH! As all of you card makers know, it is like breaking the law now if we give a "store bought" card. So....I a pinch I decided to make a card with papers that are so gorgeous that it doesn't need tons of extras or lots of time. I went to my stash and pulled out some "The Paper Temptress" papers. They are absolutely beautiful and the camera just doesn't do them justice because of the shine and sparkle. You should go check out TPT now because they are celebrating their 1 year anniversary and there are all kinds of deals going on!
I usually spend about 3-4 hours on a card but this little beauty only took about 1/2 an hour. Whew...saved by the bell! The bell and sentiment are from "Stampin Up's" "A Greeting For All Reasons" the numbers are from a generic set I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
All I did was stamp the images in Versa Mark, sprinkle on metallic silver embossing powders, heat to set, add a little ribbon, and voila!A quick elegant card!
I shouldn't have taken the time to post it tonight with all I still have to do but I couldn't help myself!
