One of my favorite cards...

This card is SO SIMPLE in both design and difficulty to make, and yet it is one of my favorite cards.
The deep pink paper is actually one-half of a ready-made card base made from this metallic pink jewel-toned cardstock. I love it when it is contrasted with the black.

I've had the cone flower stamp for many years. I think it's from a company that doesn't even exist any more. I went to a stamping party at least a dozen years ago and bought a few stamps, thinking that I'd like to try making my own cards. For some reason, I didnt stick with it then. But fast forward 6 or 8 years and I began making every single card I use. Once in a while, I even get to make cards for my daughters to give away. I love it when they actually use and appreciate the cards I make!

I colored the image with ProMarkers and added a little glitter to the tiny dragonfly's wings. I cut it out with a Spellbinders die and hand cut a black mat to frame it.
 The only other embellishments are the single black ribbon down the center and the scored lines on either side. It has a bit of an Oriental look, don't you think? I've lined the inside of the card with white paper but left it blank so I can use this for the next occasion--whatever it may be.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
