Something Simple

Thank you for visiting, I trust you feel welcome. 
 I tried to post last night but had 'issues' with blogger, and I am hoping that I have overcome them now.

 I needed a card quite quickly the other day, so made this one.


I used twinkling H2O's to paint the flowers, and added just the one rhinestone, and mounted it over a sparkling ribbon.


The final touch was the sentiment. I love this greeting as it is so elegant.


I am linking this to:
(Three layers, two stamps, one rhinestone)

Thank you for visiting - may your day be blessed.
Thank you to those who bless and encourage me with your comments.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock - bright pink
Ink - Brilliance Mediterranean Blue
Accessories - rhinestone, twinkling H2O paints, sparkling ribbon

What a beautiful Birthday card, loving the glitter.
Hope you get your computer up and running. :)

So very pretty! Love seeing the work done with H2O's I have some of those and hardly ever pull them out to play with.

I hear you about the computer issues. I've been having a time with Blogger myself. Turns out it was some Plug Ins from Firefox that were messing with it. My IT guy at work was able to get it all working again.

Thanks for playing along with us this past week at Perfect Sentiment.
